This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the best fruit that grew in a small vineyard block at Maso Martis. An ideal habitat that gives the wine characters of minerality. The limited quantity of grapes, and ultra-careful maturation, yields a Cabernet of fine structure and bouquet, enhanced by cask ageing.
Clusters are hand picked into shallow boxes and crushed immediately. Controlled fermentation with selected yeasts, 28°- 32° C in steel tanks. After fermentation, separation from the grape skins and aging in barriques and tonneaux for 36 months.
