Liste wineyard

The vines of this cru are found in the small area of Liste, and only cover about 4 hectares (about 10 acres) of land, of which 2 are property of the Damilano family.

Its soil, rich in limestone and loam (it only contains 15% sand in this area) give the wine a great complexity of aroma and structure that, along with its good acidity and a high tannin concentration, contribute to its longevity.

The depth of the land and its considerable water availability also favor the production of more structured, tannic, and strong wines, so much that the Liste is marketed one year later compared to the other crus.
