Tasting Notes

The color is ruby red with delicate purple hues. Clear references to the red fruits, cherries in brandy and ripe fruit. Pleasant spicy flavors and delicate sensations of wood and florals. It has the intensity and persistence of great wines.

Aging: After malolactic fermentation, 30-40% of the entire mass goes into French oak barrels where it will stay for at least twelve months. The remainder will complete maturation in large Slavonian oak casks for the same period. After assembly and a further rest in stainless steel tanks for about sixty days, the wine is bottled and rests another thirty days before entering the market.
Vinification: De-stemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for about 10-12 days.
