Winemaking Process

The average age of the vines is 30 years. Clusters are selected and bunches checked at the selection table. Destemming.
The wine stays 12 months in barrels (60% french oak, 40% american oak). The average barrel age is 3 years.
 

Tasting Note

Cherry red colour. Marked fruity character on the nose, with aromas of strawberry and banana and hints of vanilla, cedar wood, fallen leaves and balsamic aromas. On the palate, it is enveloping and dense with potent but round tannins. The aftertaste brings back fruit notes and an acidity that gives freshness to the wine.

 


Pairing

Combines very well with roasted and all kind of meats, cured cheese, etc.
