Vinification and Maturation

The grapes, harvested in a state of advanced ripeness, are delicately pressed and destalked. The must then undergoes a process of fermentation of 21 days at a temperature of 25-28°C. (77-82°F.). When vinification is completed, the wine matures for 14 months in 350-
liter (92-gallon) tonneaux of French oak, followed by a further period of fining in the bottle.

Vivid ruby-red colour with purple shadings.

Bouquet

An intense and distinct aroma of jam-like ripe red and black fruit.

Flavour

A very warm, silky, and almost dense flavour, rich in varietal and territorial sensations.

Serving Temperature

The great softness and richness of its structure make it perfect for particularly tasty and succulent dishes as well as for very spicy or piquant courses, typical of the southern cuisine.
