VINIFICATION AND AGEING
Fermentation takes place in vertical tanks for about 2 weeks. The wine then ages for 12 months, 50% in 350-litre tonneaux and 50% in 60-hl oak barrels, followed by a few months of ageing in bottle.
colour: dark, concentrated ruby red.
bouquet: intense hints of small ripe, almost jammy red fruits, melded with pleasant floral notes, hints of vanilla and distinct spicy notes.
flavour: full-flavoured, rich in extract, with the same spicy notes exhibited on the nose.
It pairs well with flavoursome first courses, grilled meats and well-matured cheeses.
