Wine Review & Notes
The grapes are entirely hand-picked in crates when they are fully ripe and are further selected on a sorting table.The three week vinification process uses cubic stainless steel vats, which have an excellent ratio between must surface and the grape skin cap).
After racking and a brief period in stainless steels vats, the wine rests for about a year in French oak barriques, a third of which are new, for malolactic fermentation and subsequent aging. It is then bottled and left to rest for 12 months in the cellar before release.
It has a ruby-red color with slight orange highlights that become more pronounced with time. It has a typical intense and very complex aroma. The bouquet consists of fine and elegant flowers, with hints of berry fruits, wild roses, leather and fur. The flavor is full, rich and assertive, pleasantly lingering and long on the palate.
