DESCRIPTION

Made with spontaneous fermentation. From the lower slopes in Bué, the higher clay content in the soil is perfect for Pinot Noir, the original grape grown in this region. A classic nose of cherries and gooseberries, with just a hint of leather lead into a medium-bodied wine with soft tannins, good acidity and plenty of mineral content. Quite long, but finishes fresh and tense.
