WinemakingThe grapes are harvested by hand in the first half of October, at a late ripening stage. Destemming and selection take place on the sorting table before pressing. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about a week at a controlled temperature, followed by a short maceration on the skins. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in steel and about 20-30% is passed on to second passage French oak barrels. This is followed by a one year refinement in steel and at least 3 months in the bottle, before being put on the market.
Other curiosities

Colour is pale ruby. The nose, immediately reveals hints of cherry, blackberry and spices (black pepper). In the mouth, it is structured but agile, with a soft and enveloping tannin. Excellent persistence and pleasant drinking.
