(From «nv» Vintage) Vinification is obtained through maceration of the must (with the skins) for 8-10 days with short and frequent "pumping over” to extract color. On completion of the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation the wine undergoes maturation in oak barrels for at least 6 months.
(From 2008 Vintage) Dark in color with nose of red berries and some oak. On the mid pallet this wine is displaying some nice fruit. Not overpowering but there. Red berries and some noticeable oak. On the finish the wine displays some nice fine tannins and a bit of dryness on a medium finish.
