Method & Production

Picking date chosen according to tasting berries for optimal maturity. The varieties are vinified separately. Long maceration of 3-4 weeks, with rack and returns, gentle punch-downs and pump-overs. Maturation in concrete tanks, stainless steel, 600 L casks and 228 L barrels.

Tasting notes

Dense ruby/purple color. Floral-accented aromas of red and dark berries, allspice, and anise. Abundant cherry, strawberry, and cassis aromas, and a well-delineated, focused, medium-bodied style.
