A hierarchy has been set up to differentiate the specificities of each of these areas. Overall, the entire AOC region benefits from a Mediterranean climate characterized by a hot and dry season, influenced by the relief.
It is one of the oldest vineyards, in fact the traces of the exploitation of the vines date back to the Greek period. Later on, the Roman civilization improved the winemaking process. The 20th century was a period of questioning these wines since production was very important although the quality was lower. Today, this rich region has been able to review its methods to focus on quality using noble grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Viognier.
The reds are often carmine and, in the case of longer maceration, they take on a deeper colour. On the nose, aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant are present on young wines, after ageing we find leather, dried fruit or toasted almonds. These wines may be a little closed in their early years but release fine mineral aromas afterwards.
The rosés are pale and bright with a very floral and fruity nose (mainly acacia and cherry). They are full and supple in the mouth.
The whites are bright straw yellow with citrus and apricot aromas. We find the scents of the scrubland and honey. They are fresh and smooth once in the mouth.
