A ruby/purple wine, rounded, rich and powerful, with distinct notes of black berries and notes of aromas of old roses. Very long in the finish.
Nature’s gift. Vintner’s single variety selection of the year.
Aged 18 months in selected French oak barrels. A well structured Merlot, with a rich mouthfill, elegant tannins and long in the finish. We named this wine after the white owl that visits the estate on warm summer nights, sits in one of the the old stone oaks overlooking the vineyard and sings.
The name has also deep ties to Volterra, where owls are believed to bring good luck.
