After harvesting, grapes are pressed and remain in tanks until fermentation is completed. The wine is then transferred to the cellar for malolactic fermentation and maturing in new French oak barrels. It remains in the barrels for at least 2 years. This is followed by bottling and maturing in the bottles for at least another 2 years. To preserve its flavour, the wine does not undergo stabilisation and filtering.
Deep red colour with red hues. Prominent aromas of green bell pepper, red fruits and mint with smoky notes and hints of roasted nuts. Complex in the mouth, full-bodied and structured, with string tannins and balanced acidity. The finish is followed by a fruity after-taste.
Suitable for extensive ageing.
Grilled meats, slow-cooked game and aged, spicy cheeses.
*Careful transfer of the wine to a decanter before serving is recommended, to avoid sediments and allow the flavour profile to better express itself.
