ELABORATION

Following a mild pressing, the must macerates in the cold in contact with the skins for 48 hours.

Post-fermentation maceration for 48 hours and malolactic fermentation in concrete vats.

12 months in 70% new American and 30% second year French oak barrels. Minimum of 1 year resting in the bottle for refinement. 

TASTING NOTES 

This is an elegant yet original wine that has an intensely bright cherry colour with a maroon sheen. Powerful on the nose, with aromas of ripe red fruits perfectly matched with vanilla, creams, light toasting and mineral overtones which give it a great complexity which is gradually unveiled as it airs in the glass. Its palate is intense yet elegant; the ripe tannins stand out alongside its breadth and roundness, leaving a lengthy, pleasant aftertaste.
