Wine Description

(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.

Winemaker's Notes

Color: Ruby red, becoming garnet with age. Nose: Ample, intense and refined, with excellent variety of aromas. Palate: Warm, robust, elegant with a persistent aroma.

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.

    Beautiful deep red tones and aromas of dried cherries and spices. Smooth right out of the bottle. Long finish.
