Tasting notes: Dark-hued with young, purple-blue hints. On the nose small wild berries in their best ripe version, you can certainly find hints of blackberry that are characteristic of the grape. Balsamic notes are typical of this specific site. In the palate acidness is the surprise, acidness is the logo of this winery and it brings an elegant side to this big wild boy of the Italian enology. Juicy berries and black pepper in the long finish. Even if you will open an aged one it will surprise with a graphite color, deep and impenetrable, typical of this indigenous grape.

REVIEW

Davvero ottimo

★★★★★
Vivido e preciso al naso. Note di lievito e pane si uniscono alla frutta regalando belle sensazioni. In bocca è vibrante e molto beverino.”
- Giovanna

Umbrian aperitivo

★★★★★
Light yellow-gold. Compelling nose with fruit-forward aromas of citrus and mineral undertones. Fine bubbles and a fresh palate. Ideal as an aperitivo!”
