Le Zalte IGT Rosso Bordeaux Blend - 2018
Le Zalte is the most representative wine of the company's history and production choice. This Bordeaux blend represents the complete synthesis of what we believe it means to make biodynamic wines: a method that focuses on work in the vineyard and which sees in the cellar the accompaniment to the transformation of grapes into wine. Intense ruby red color with violet reflections when young. The nose is wide and intense with hints of blackberries, raspberries, marasca cherry jam and a light violet on a spicy background. The taste is soft and full with sweet and velvety tannins, closing on fruity tones of great persistence.
