after the crushing, the fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, favoring prolonged contact with the skins with the must.
The malolactic fermentation occurs in October right after the alcoholic fermentation.

Ageing

20 months in used French barriques

Alcohol

Tasting Note

Dark ruby colour with vivacious reflections. Lots of liquorice and a hint of black pepper. Ripe plum, aromatic herbs. Gently rounded acidity, toasty and creamy mid palate with a hint of fumé and delicate, silky tannins. Great flavour intensity and concentration let wine linger for long in the after taste leaving a slightly jammy blackberry hint. 

Food pairing

Serve with red meat, cold meats and mature cheeses.
