The grapes are harvested by hand and gently pressed in a horizontal pressoir to ensure the fullest extraction and range of flavors and aromas.

Elegant citrus aromas. Concentrated and elegant, combining flavors dried fruit and woody notes. Nice balance between matter and acidity, long and persistent finish.
