Vinification

Harvesting is done by hand in September to ensure perfect ripening of the grapes. Maceration takes place in stainless steel tanks for 14-16 days. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is placed in French oak barrels for 12 months, allowing it to more fully express its unique character. It is then bottled and rested for six months in a cellar before being sold. A perfect wine for aging.

Taste

Purple in color, this wine exudes aromas of underbrush and venison followed, after aeration, by notes of spice and crushed black fruit. Rich and powerful attack. Firm tannins. Smoky and cherry on the palate. An elegant wine with huge potential.
