The vineyard is working according to organic viticulture and cellar work aims to reflect the expression of terroir, making short maceration, low extraction, and a very respectful parenting, a style of wine you are looking for elegance and silky tannins. The fermentations were carried out with indigenous yeasts and racking occur only rarely.
