History tells how Hannibal, his soldiers and battle elephants marched through the region, the current locations of some of our vine plots. What better image than the elephant to symbolise our grape varietals' power and grace while worshipping the animal, nowadays an icon for environmental protection. Fantasy? A 'clean wine' with garnet-red colour and ruby glints, combined with a cheerful nose opening gradually on a bouquet of ripe fruits, making our taste buds sing on aromas of fresh raspberry and hints of spice, followed by a supple tannic weft.

Nature has the power to stir emotion as the sight of a hummingbird in flight. This "natural emotion" can be perceived in this frank and generous wine crafted in biodynamics.
A beautiful raspberry colour sets the tone and anticipates a lovely blueberry and blackcurrant nose with a subtle touch of pepper. The attack is fresh in the mouth, with the flavours of wild strawberries and very ripe red fruits, flirting with fruit richness and buttery silkiness. The finish is taut with vanilla and tangy wild strawberry notes.
