Unlike the 2012 vintage, made only from grapes grown on clay-limestone soil, our 2013 also includes fruit from schist vineyards. It has a purple-red robe and pronounced truffle aromas while on the palate, it has good structure and minerality which can be attributed to the schist parcels. A lively, vibrant wine with good balance, thanks to grapes picked at optimum ripeness. The tannins are present but well-integrated: a good vintage.
