92 POINTS - ROBERT PARKER'S THE WINE ADVOCATE      [Read More]

divider

The grapes for this wine come from two very old vineyards planted in 1920 and the other in 1935. The vines are grown in the vaso system on south oriented hillsides in soils made of decomposed black slate and quartz located at 550 m (1,800 ft) above sea level.  The grapes are hand-harvested into small baskets to prevent bruising.  The winemaker, Amy Hopkinson, oversees the winemaking process.
