Lovely, very pale pink hue with beautiful bright reflections. Discreet on the nose, with subtle aromas of roses and eucalyptus. Fine and smooth on the palate, with notes of red fruit and citrus. Delicious, long finish, leaving a sensation of freshness with a slight hint of aniseed.

Volcanic, clay and limestone.
The climate is typically Mediterranean, warm and sunny with low rainfall. Winters are mild, summers are hot and the usual dry conditions ensure that the grapes ripen fully. Vines are ploughed; no weed killer is used. Pruning is short to regulate the vine's growth and its yields.
The grapes are picked at night in two passes. The first harvest is done at a relatively early stage in maturity, to keep freshness in the wine. Then 15 days later a second harvest is done, to get good concentration and varietal aromas. Grapes are destemmed and then macerated at 5°C for 6 hours. Fermentation is temperature-controlled at 17 ° C. The lees are added during tapping before fermentation to improve the mouth structure. No malolactic fermentation.
