"Bright red. Perfumed red cherry, minerals and fresh flowers on the captivating nose. Then rich and thick, with clean flavors of red berries and candied violet boasting noteworthy inner-mouth perfume. Finishes long and fresh, with a repeating note of violet and a hint of strawberry. This light-bodied, perfumed, lovely red is yet another in a long line of delicious Frappato wines from this producer; it’s a wine that offers a ton of flavor, bright acids and floral lift, but only 13% alcohol. Well done." ~ IA

100% Frappato. From estate vines averaging 40 years old, some bush-trained and some wire-trained, on red sand soils over limestone rock. This site is at a higher altitude and harvested later than those in the SP68 bottling. Hand-harvested (like all of her wines). Grapes from a more limestone-heavy section of the vineyard is fermented in concrete; fruit from a sandier parcel is vinified in large, old oak. Maceration lasts approximately 30 days. Aging takes place in 25-hectoliter Slavonian oak for about 14 months. Bottled unfiltered. Biodynamic.
