Sweet oak-related notes of caramel, toffee and vanilla are balanced by savoury hints of black pepper and bay, while the mouth is a bowl of ripe black fruit.
Volcanic in origin, and loam to sandy loam in texture, these soils are of colluvial and alluvial formation and give the wine structure and medium body. The slow erosion of the Aculeo hill means the soil is rich in minerals. The “Piedmont” soil series is situated along the hillsides of the estate with a slope that ranges between 3 and 20 degrees. This soil has an abundance of angular stones and coarse and fine gravel. Thanks to its texture and the high number of angular stones, the vines’ roots can freely explore.
