MUNJEBEL® ROSSO PU, CONTRADA PUNTALAZZO

This is our only single vineyard wine which is outside of the Northern valley. Most of the grapes of this 1 hectare large vineyard is destined for our rosato, but every year we try to produce from the upper terraces a red, if the grapes make it into the right maturation. The view from this vineyard is stupendous, with the mediterranean sea in front of you, the forest which surrounds the vineyard. The wines have an atmosphere which resembles the surroundings, fragrant, elegant, nearly fragile and of a rare beauty.
