Elevation is a key to the style here, with the relative cool of 400–450 metres providing elegance and balance, while the notably calcareous and decomposed quality of this particular patch of Galestro soil imbues the wines with distinctive chalky minerality that is framed by the transparency of classical élevage in large-format oak.
