The wine displays a bright green-gold color with sparkling silver-grey highlights. Its nose is dense, rich, and complex, revealing fresh and acidulous citrus notes. With aeration, the aromas evolve into refreshing aniseed and flinty nuances. On the palate, the wine is flavorful and vibrant, bursting with energy and crispy spicy notes. The finish is marked by a delightful sapidity that lingers indefinitely, showcasing the wine's remarkable length. Produced from a 0.28-hectare plot characterized by a steep slope facing due east, the vineyard has very thin soil, measuring only 15-20 cm in depth. The subsoil is highly calcareous, consisting of lithographic limestone, while the stony soil adds further complexity. The grapes were meticulously handpicked into small crates and pressed in a pneumatic winepress. After pressing, the juice underwent cold settling for 36 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. The entire process of alcoholic fermentation and aging took place exclusively in oak barrels. Full malolactic fermentation occurred, contributing to the wine's richness and balance. The wine was aged for a duration of 21 months, allowing it to develop depth, complexity, and harmonious integration of flavors. ABV 12%
