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.
Eight months in medium-toasted French oak tonneaux; then, six months of refinement in bottles.
A ruby-red wine with a light shade of purple. Generous in fruit flavor and spicy notes, its vaguely sweet taste stimulates your imagination. It shows remarkable intrigue in its complexity and never fails to enchant with its supple, finely textured palate.
Aromatic, vegetable, it softly envelopes your mouth showing overripe fruit and leaving an absolutely agreeable aftertaste. A wine that surprises at every sip and everybody would like to drink.
