The other face of Bonarda grapes. A still wine with good body, pulp and impressive concentration, the depths of which are foreshadowed by its impenetrable ruby red colour.
A well-bodied, pulpy, captivating wine that calls to mind blackberry jam with light spice notes (cinnamon).
A soft streak completes this wine’s personality, and the appropriate tannins included ensure its longevity.
The grape bunches follow a fully polyphenolic ripening process and are then hand-picked, carefully selected and placed in small crates.
Once in the wine cellar, they are destemmed, pressed and left to macerate for 10 days with frequent pumping over.
After the first rackings, the wine is filtered at about 1.5% residual sugar, left to rest in stainless steel tanks for 5 months and finally filtered and bottled in spring.
The vineyards are on average 13 years old and are grown according to the Guyot method, a cultivation practice that favours low yields but high concentration.
This Bonarda Ferma wine in particular is intended for the least fertile part of the vineyard, using meagre, perfectly drained soil that results in extremely low yields of sparsely clustered grapes gifted with strong personalities.
