Production Area The soil of alluvial origin is characterized by a first surface layer resting on the second layer of pebbles of various sizes, of limestone and dolomite origin, a rock composed of calcium carbonate and magnesium. The texture is sandy and the pebbles (“graves” in French) guarantee a high-temperature shift from day to night which enhances the aromas, scents, and elegance of the grapes. The temperate climate is favorably affected by the presence of the Friulian Dolomites which shelter from the cold north winds, facilitating the mitigating effect of the Adriatic Sea to the south.
Winemaking Harvested in the first weeks of September, the grapes are de-stemmed and placed in stainless steel fermenters, where the must remains to macerate with the skins for about 5 days, at a controlled temperature. Once the skins are separated from the must, the alcoholic fermentation is completed, again in steel. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in concrete tanks for 3 months.
Other curiosities

Originally from Burgundy, it has perfectly adapted to the climate of the Grave region where it benefits from a perfect temperature shift to enhance its scents. It is an ancient vine that we vinify in red to obtain an elegant and soft wine.

The color is intense, deep ruby. The nose is complex, with clear hints of red jam, strawberry and vague hints of incense. At taste, it is soft, balanced, fullbodied with smooth tannins.
