Winemaking: Parcellar selection with maturity control. Grapes are sorted after picking and 100% destemmed. The temperature of fermentation is regulated between 28 and 30° C for 8 to 10 days. After fermentation the wine is kept on the skins for additional 15 to 25 days. Malolactic fermentation. Aged 12 months in oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: Deep, garnet-red color. The nose is reminiscent of blackberries with toasty overtones from the wood. On the palate, it is full-bodied with a strong backbone, and a great capacity to age 5 to 8 years. The fruit is beautifully balanced with the flavors from the oak barrel.
Food Pairing: It will be well appreciated with all red meats and sauce dishes.
