A wild, vibrant Carignan from old vines in Latour-de-France. This was de-stemmed, foot trodden and spent a month on skins, followed by a year in a single barrique. It is dark, deep and intense and as exciting a take on this grape as we have tried.

Vinyer de la Ruca

Manuel de Vecchi Starez is a native of Tuscany who around a decade ago moved to France to farm some extremely low-yielding old bush vines in the hills above Banyuls-sur-Mer. He’s an uncompromising man and his wines are deep expressions of this rugged terrain.
