Notes from the producer:

"This wine comes from the estate’s Nervo Cru vineyard, confining with the Bernardot Cru. The steep slopes make working conditions harder but at the same time improve the drainage system and the solar exposition. The perfect microclimatic conditions and the poor soil (white marl clayey-calcareous) give the wine density and exemplary finesse. The taste is earthy and mineral, notes of raspberry, cinnamon and fresh mint. The finish is characterized by linear and thick tannins."

Winemaking
Hand-harvested in small crates, fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature for a period of about 3-4 weeks. Following the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is racked and undergoes a malolactic fermentation, which normally lasts a month. Aged for about 12 months in large Slavonian oak barrels, then into concrete vats for 6-9 months and then bottled before being released onto the market.
