Vinification takes place in stainless steel vats. The grapes ferment in contact with the skins for 15 to 21 days. During this period pump-overs and delèstages are effected in order to extract polyphenols. The malolactic fermentation happens during the wood aging. The wine spends 36 months in 10 – 20 HL oak barrels.

Tasting notes:

The colour is deep ruby red tending towards garnet as the wine ages while the bouquet is fruity and characterised by evident notes of violet and red berries. The spicy tones and the oak are perfectly balanced with the fruit. The wine is intense, well structured, elegant and pleasingly complex. It is perfectly matched with red meat dishes or with mature cheese.
