It is made only in the great years, exclusively from Syrah grapes cultivated in our farm, with very low yields per hectare (maximum 4 tons from 5.000 vines), strictly selected throughout the year (especially before and during the harvest) expressly for this wine, all over our best vineyards, above all from our favourite one, named Cuculaia, hand picked (usually from mid-September) into small 15 kg. boxes with ventilation holes.

It reveals an intense and elegant bouquet reminding of crushed black pepper, meat, ripe wild berries, light dried fruits, cherries and blackberries, red roses, with notes of sweet spices like dark chocolate, cinnamon and liquorice, plus a lot of fine mineral graphite hints in the beautiful finish.

In the palate all these sensations join in a perfectly balanced body, confirming the extraordinary richness and complexity of flavours perceived by smell, with velvety and well-integrated tannins and lively, pleasant acidity. Exquisite texture, taste of ripe black and red berries, jam, with mineral nuances and balsamic hints. The finish is extremely long, really unforgettable.
