The Wine

The wine is ruby in colour with a medium purple hue. The nose is complex yet delicate with aromas of violets, sweet-spiced cherries, red berries, earl grey tea, aromatic herbs and subtle pepper. On the palate the wine is savoury and fleshy with juicy acidity and lovely minerality which will allow it to cellar short to medium term.


The Dolcetto grapes were hand picked before being transferred to an open fermenter where they were hand plunged to add complexity and texture. Once the wine finished alcoholic fermentation, the free run juice was drained and the skins lightly pressed. The wine settled for a day before it was transferred to barrels for malic acid fermentation. It was aged in barrel for 12 months before being blended, fined and bottled.
