Saffron and balsamic on the nose, with juicy blackberry pie, leather and smoke on the palate. Drink lightly chilled to bring out the zing and pop.
The grapes are destemmed with berries kept whole and gently pressed without breaking the skins, just enough to kick off a native-yeast fermentation in vat. Fermentations go long in this cold cellar, as do macerations, which are up to 2 months. This Vino Rosso blend is aged in a mix of cement, fiberglass and Slavonian oak for about a year before bottling without filtration. Zero sulfur.
