Bright purple, with the tendency to develop garnet hues with the aging, this wine has attractive aromas of violet, cherries and berries matched with pleasant spicy notes. It is round and velvety, very elegant and sustained by thick but non-aggressive tannins leading to a long and intense finish.

Grapes are harvested by hand after a bunch selection in the vineyard. Stems are removed and grapes are soft pressed before undergoing fermentation in 53 high wooden casks. Once the fermentation is finished, the wine will be kept in contact with the skins for 20-25 days before it is introduced into cement vats for malolactic fermentation.

Best to enjoy with pasta dishes or steak.
