Thinning of shoots and early clusters throughout the maturation period with further bunch selection at harvest. The grapes go through the traditional process for red wine vinification and fermentation at temperatures of 28°-30° C in 50cl oak vats.
In small oak barrels and large casks for a total of 28-30 months. 10 months of bottle aging follows. The wine is unfiltered.
A brilliant, lively, intense, red-granite colour. On the nose, ethereal qualities can be perceived with characteristic violet notes, then cherry, spice and leather hints. It has a warm full mouthfeel, velvety enveloping texture with just the right balance of tannins and acidity. Suggested serving temperature: 15-17° C.
