Inland Savona, in Quiliano village. Here the grape variety used - Granaccia, Garnacha, Grenache, Cannonau in Sardinia - is nothing but the Alicante Bouschet, of Spanish origin, not to be confused with the French clone, the most cultivated in the region of Liguria.
Eighteen months of steel for this lively ruby red, with an appealing nose.
Plenty of small red fruits - raspberry, strawberry, currant - accompanied by balsamic and vegetables notes - eucalyptus, rosemary and mint - and a good mineral trace.
Tasting stands for freshness and a symmetrical correspondence nose-palate. The prevalence of the fruit is balanced by good acidity, which pushes up the call to sip, for an high drinkability.
A genuine glass, balanced - 13.5 alcohol not perceived - and gentle tannins, medium persistence, with sincere finals calls of red berry fruits, white pepper and a touch of graphite.
