VINIFICATION AND AGEING
Following crushing and destalking, the juice undergoes a fermentation and maceration process in steel tanks lasting 8-12 days, allowing for extraction of a considerable amount of colour and polyphenolics. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in oak barrels.
colour: deep, bright with hints of purple.
bouquet: Scents of jammy sour cherry and spices come through on the nose with slight herbaceous and resin notes.
flavour: Dense and fruity, providing a lovely contrast to the energetic freshness. Tannins are soft and the finish long and persistent.
The distinctive fruitiness means this wine is ideal from starter to dessert It pairs well with starters, with sauces, with meat stews and medium- and long-aged cheeses. Also ideal as an aperitif or after dinner.
