 Grapes are destemmed and gently crushed. Brief pre-fermentation maceration is followed by pomace fermentation for 6 to 8 days at controlled temperatures of between 22-24'C with fairly frequent pumping over. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is separated from the solids with which it fermented and malolactic fermentation is induced. All of the wine ages in French oak barrels for 18 months.

Suggestions
Fresh, intense aroma, including hints of red fruits, such as raspberries, and citrus fruits such as mandarin oranges combined with the scent of orange blossom. The wood is very well integrated in this altogether  complex wine..
Clear & strong red.
Intense flavor, with red fruits predominating. Balanced acidity, in a wine whose smooth tannins provide great structure and a long and persistent aftertaste.
Long and persistent aftertaste

16 - 18ºC

Excellent accompaniment for meat dishes and a variety of cheeses.
