The soil is composed of clayey alluviums and a mixed of stones which can be ferruginous. The bedrock is composed of dry sand very beneficial for the vine culture.
Bright ruby color. Very supple and delicate wine, shows a light tannins structure. The nose and the mouth are very fruity (red berries) and fresh. With a bit of ageing it will show some jammy and slighty spicy notes.
