FRAGIL the solution for vintages where ”only“ something like 100° Oechsle are possible by nature. A Port style of ”Vintage”-character, meaning that the fruit is dominating the wine and not maturation flavours by oxidative ageing.
FRAGIL(E) is the wine and style you get when using Pinot for a fortified wine. The real Pinot strength is still to be always fragile in character.
FRAGIL presents a subtle sweet character embedded in a delight raisin-like finish without overwhelming the palate.

The vinification is minimized by the use of natural biological processes and physical transformations.
