  • Introduction

    • Noi4 (noy-kwah-tro) translates to “the four of us”. This is because it is composed by four varieties and it was conceived by a team of four. We also like the idea of sharing the bottle among four people.

    • A blend born of the desire to explore new territories, refined in barriques for 8 months. This wine is very expressive in what was the vintage 2020. It’s characterized by a very elegant nose, fresh fruitiness, balanced acidity, good persistence with an interesting minerality. In the mouth the tannins are very soft and round.
