This wine comes from vines of at least 60 years old, which produce about 600g from 1 square metre.
Situated on the coast of the Ioanian sea, this vineyard grows on calcium soil which rises with the sun giving it a golden colour, inspiring the name of our wine « Oro di Emera ».
The harvesting is undertaken with small boxes, with a selection of the best grapes in middle of September, about 10 days after the harvesting of Primitivo.
From an intense ruby red colour, this wine develops on the nose with aromas of liquorice, sweet spices and red fruits.
On the palate, the bouquet is complex, intense and fruity. We discover scents of cherries and prunes with a matchless lingering flavour on the finish.
