Maceration for 20 days in small vats at controlled temperatures during the whole process of fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in vat.

Ageing: 12-14 months in 225 litres new barrels (75% French oak, 25% American oak).
Bottling: once bottled, the wine is aged in bottle for at least 6 months at a controlled temperature.

Tasting note

Deep red picota cherry colour with violet hues at the rim. Intense nose with aromas of ripe red fruit well integrated with spice, smoke and toast notes. On the palate, it is a structured and mouth-coating wine, with silky tannins. Bitterness and acidity are well balanced. A wine with a long finish.

Food pairing and suggestions

A perfect match with all kinds of red meat, game, haute cuisine, desserts… Recommended serving temperature: 16ºC.

Potential for ageing: 5 to 8 years.
