Winemaker's comment: Deep purple hue, the nose is complex with notes of spices & truffles. There is precision in the mouth with excellent balance between the integrated tannins, the elegant fruit and mineral freshness. The finish is powerful and sustained.
More on vineyard and winemaking: Vines are planted at density of 6250 vines/ha. Harvest by hand, gathering grapes in small crates, with grape sorting. Bargylus elegantly combines strength & refinement it has a strong color, the range of aroma is perceivable through the fresh fruit & minerality that translates the very shingly soil. The balance between sweetness, that comes with sunniness and the grapes??? full maturity, and salinity that comes with limestone, allows Bargylus to convey a strong soil identity and an inimitable taste.
