Vinification

Fermentation in stainless steel vats, with temperature control and extended maceration. Matured for 12 months in half barrels of French and American oak.

Taste

A garnet-coloured wine that is almost opaque. An aroma reminiscent of very ripe dark fruit preserves, with floral notes that are typical of this grape variety. Velvety and full on the palate, with very well integrated tannins. A long and persistent finish.

Cocktails and pairings

Serve with red meat, game, roasts, strong cheeses and foie gras.
