Fred Niger has been the owner of Domaine de L'Ecu since 2009 in the Loire Valley. He owns 25 hectares that he cultivates following the precepts of biodynamics and using amphoras for the aging process. Love & Grape Gloria is part of the "Le Temps des Copains" selection, wines that he makes together with winemakers from different regions. Gloria was born after the friendship between Fred and Francesco de Filippis and it is made with Vermentino from a vineyard located in Tuscany. Maceration with skins and aging in amphoras of 400 liters for 9 months, no added sulphur. On the nose, an explosion of flowers, fruits and sweet spices, with a vibrant mouth and a citrus freshness. Only 1,320 bottles.
Ripe citrus, green almond, notes of white flowers and delicate notes of sweet spice. Mineral, incisive, yet round with voluminous texture at the same time. Great aromatic richness and length and yet it has an incisive minerality, making this a wonderful pairing wine.
