Harvesting and wine-making:
Grapes are picked up by hand and gently laid down into little airy crates, arriving as whole bunches at the winery. Once there, grapes are further selected using an advanced sorting table.
Nine months in medium-toasted French oak tonneaux; then, eight months of bottle fining.
Our nose is wrapped up in a triumph of fragrances. Balsamic, deep ripe fruit aromas smoothly glide into a chocolate and tobacco finish.
A solid wine with ample smoked notes and a fine-grained texture. Extraordinary persistent, with soft round tannins extending gently and a well- balanced, long finish.
