Product details

Winemaking

After total de-stemming, whole grapes endured a pre-fermentation maceration for 4 days. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel vats at 24-26 ° C for 6 days. The final fermentation was done in French oak barrels, where malolactic fermentation subsequently occurred. The wines aged for 9 months.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby colour, almost violet, with great aromatic complexity. Black and red fruits stand out, such as black cherry and cassis, with balsamic resinous notes and even a touch of mocha and smoked hints, from wood ageing. Great freshness and elegance in the mouth, with a lengthy finish.

Store and serve advices

Storage Lying down at a temperature of 15°C. Serve at a temperature of 16°C to 18ºC

Food Pairing
