After sorting the grapes, the maceration tanks are filled by gravity feed. Maceration on the skins for 40 days.
In 5-hectolitre oak barrels for 40 months; blending; bottle aged for one year.
Intense ruby red colour. Extreme complexity and elegance to the nose. Typically characterised by notes of fruit and aromatic herbs, where citrus, cherry, wild berries, mint and oregano stand out. On the palate it is a very fine and structured wine, with a decisive and integrated tannin. Wine that is best expressed with a long bottle ageing.
Accompanies grilled and roasted meats, braised or stewed red meats, game and mature hard cheeses.
Best period for drinking
