'Çericò' Vino RossoPrima Terra
The wine takes its name from the forest of turkey oaks that surrounds the vineyard. It is located at an altitude of 500 meters on the heights of Riomaggiore, an area that a thousand years ago hosted the first human settlements of the Cinque Terre. The vineyard is about 20 years old and grows on shale and sandy soil, containing a percentage of silt that is very rare in this area. The hot microclimate in summer but with significant temperature fluctuations allows aromas to fix themselves better ni aromatic vines.
Garnet red. Flowers, red fruits, herbs, rhubarb and spicy notes. Velvety tannins, structured and balanced, fruity.
