Winemaking: The grapes are destemmed 100%. The wine is macerated on the skins for 20 days at 28-30° C. Temperature controlled fermentation. Malolactic fermentation. Aged 6 months in stainless-steel tanks.

Tasting Notes: Bright, ruby-red color. A reserved nose of black currant and raspberry bouquet. Medium-bodied, soft in the mouth. Well balanced, very pleasant drinking.
