Whole berry and 35% whole bunch maceration and fermentation for 14 days in big wooden Stockinger vats. Aged for 14 months in 50% big oak and 50% used barriques.

Method & Production
Expressive fruit flavors with notes of raspberry and a hint of caramel. Silky tannins, well rounded and great complexity with a really impressive length.
This wine fits excellent to roast veal, wild- fowl (pheasant, partridge, guinea fowl) or alternatively to pasta and mushroom dishes.
