Black cassis, leather, sweet anise, focused black cherry, whisps of methol. On the palate an element of truth emerges, with fruit layered in an "old world" meets "new world" style. Meaning, this is living somewhere between two distinct winemaking styles, giving both fruit and softness to the new world lovers, and earth and grit to the old world lovers. It's a beautiful match-up. "Zero Manipulation" indicates that the wine was made in the vineyard, focusing on the health of the Tollini Vineyard, and in the cellar minimal intervention. Indigenous yeasts, unfined and unfiltered. Blend of Carignane, Grenache, Syrah and Petite Sirah.
