Tasting note:

An intense bouquet with aromas of very ripe red and black summer fruits with spicy notes. In addition, the palate boasts notes of liquorice and leather combined with a lovely tannic structure. Balance, strength and length are what characterise this wine. Serve at 16°C to accompany meats in sauce and beautiful grills.

Temperatura di servizio: 16°C

Destemming and fermentation at 28 °C. Juice extraction is enhanced by re-circulating the lees manually from the bottom of the vats once a day. The wine is macerated for 4 -6 weeks before pressing, followed by the malolactic fermentation phase.
Aged 12 months in French oak barrels for 40% of the wine what gives complexity and length in mouth.
