THE WINE MAKING
After manual selection of the grapes, the grapes are worked: after a period of pre-fermentation maceration for 2-3 days at 12 ° C, followed by fermentation at controlled temperature. After 7 days of post-fermentation maceration, the wine is transferred to new French oak tonneaux for 8/10 months. Bottle aging is 15 months.
Intense ruby color, the flavor releases balsamic notes, berries and sweet spices. In the mouth it is enveloping and balanced, with a long dynamic and elegant finish.
