Visual considerations

Red ruby colour with garnet shades with a good coloured and concentrated intensity. It also shows a visual consistency.

Fragrance considerations

Intense and persistent it shows a variegated and a rich presence of intense scents of ripe fruit and preserves of wild fruit berries together with a typical recall of ripe cherries. A floral evolution of coloured flowers of potpourri can be verified together with a fine trace of scented spices ranging from vanilla, cinnamon cloves to other spices.

Flavour considerations

Full bodied with a taste structure that is modulated by a fine presence of acidity and sweet tannin. The aftertaste is persistent denoting a fine harmony between fragrance and taste. In its complexity it is a harmonious wine.

Vinification

Harvesting is done by hand after a very attentive choice of the grapes in the vineyard. The grapes are then placed in small crates and placed in a special room for a short flash period which consents in obtaining grapes containing a high concentration of polyphenol together with a high grade of sugar. The grapes are then destemmed, pressed and vinificated using a delicate technique of processing. The maceration takes place in stainless steel vats and is periodically amalgamated so as to obtain the best colour and aroma. During this period that lasts 25 days the wine terminates its alcoholic fermentation at 28°. The wine is then transferred into new French oak barriques (Allier and Troncaise) for approximately twelve months. This is where the malo-lactic fermentation terminates.

Food combination

A very compelling wine with a sturdy structure - recommended for important occasions, appreciates accompaniment to rich traditional dishes and very tasty main dishes.

How to serve

Open the bottle at least 20 minutes before drinking and serve at a temperature of 18/20°.
