Raboso is a native grape of the Veneto, whose presence is documented in the Piave from 600, although its cultivation in thenortheast of Italy dates back to before the advent of Rome. In an ancient ampelographic Bulletin of 1885 we read that the ambassadors of the Most Serene Republic of Venice – which concluded its history in 1797 – in honor of England’s most famous characters with a few bottles of Raboso. Vineyard and stages of cultivation: The vineyard consists of old vines grown in Casarsa, is located in the municipality of Tezze di Piave on an alluvial soil, consisting of carry-gravel of the river Piave. In the vineyard of the interventions are performed to improve the production characteristics of the vines and the quality of the grapes, for example: you select the shoots in spring, leaving only those that are best placed on the plant and in summer you remove the leaves that cover the clusters to improve the accumulation of substances in the skins and colors late summer, in September, it reduces the number of clusters on the lil screws to improve the accumulation of sugars in the berries. Only when the grapes have reached a slight over-ripeness can be collected, which is done manually.

One of the most recognised estates in Bandol, thanks largely to US wine merchant Kermit Lynch, who’s sung its praises since the 70s. Lulu Peyraud, who ran the estate with her the late husband Lucien from the 30s, is still gong strong at 103. Incredible. The rosé is a blend of approximately 55% mourvèdre, 25% grenache and 20% cinsault.
“The Bandol Tempier Rosé offers a unique blend of complexity and freshness. It has a fine structure, with no tannin. The high-quality care given to the vines and the diversity of the terroirs produce a flavorful intensity and a strong typicity.”Winemaker’s notes.

Dolcetto wines are known for cherry and licorice with some prune flavours and a slight bitter finish reminiscent of almonds. While the name implies sweetness, the wines are normally dry. The dark purple skin of Dolcetto grapes have high amounts of anthocyanins, which require only a short maceration time with the grape skin to produce a dark coloured wine. The amount of skin to contact affects the resulting tannin levels in the wine, with most winemakers preferring to limit the maceration time to as short as possible.
This winery has obtained a certification for biodynamic production and offers a wine that represents the energy and characteristics of the specific “terroir”
The wine finishes fermenting in barrel; Using a combination of new and old French and American oak. A small percentage of cordon cut, vine dried Shiraz is added to the wine prior to bottling.

The nose opens up with sweet scent of elder and pear blossom and develops into apricot, pineapple and melon. In the mouth it is deep, mellow and very harmonious with a full body, soft and round mouthfeel and a note of spice and oak on the finish.
