A sparkling red wine with deep blackberry and red fruit flavours along with a strong mineral character. Surprisingly dry for a pet nat. Only made in small quantities and has developed a bit of a cult following.

The grapes are partially destemmed and placed in 50 hl cement tanks where they remain for less than 24 hours. It is immediately drawn off, pressed and then transferred to a 35hl stainless steel tank. Here it carries out part of the spontaneous fermentation in contact with the skins. A small part of the must is preserved before fermentation, it will be used to restart the fermentation inside the bottle, thus obtaining a natural sparkling. The wine is bottled in the spring in a waning moon and aged 6 months in bottle. We do not carry out any clarification and filtration or addition of sulfur dioxide.
