Grapes are harvested by hand, in boxes of 20 kg, at their ideal point of maturation leading to higher aromatic and polyphenolic concentrations. After gentle crushing and total destemming, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks equipped with a temperature control system. This wine aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels and 6 months in bottle.
With a deep purple red colour, it is very concentrated on the nose with an aroma of very ripe red fruits, cocoa and spices integrated with notes of wood. The mouth is elegant with good acidity and velvety tannins resulting in a very structured and harmonious wine.
