The harvest is between the end of September, beginning of October. The grapes are handpicked and moved to the winery in small crates of 18kg. In the winery the grape are crushed and destemmed, then the fermentation start with the skin maceration at a controlled temperature. When both fermentation alcoholic and malolactic are done, and after few decantations, the wine is filtrated and bottled.
Great and intense color with purple reflex. The aroma is rich of fruit with berries and sweet spices. The mouthful is balanced and fresh with good fruit taste that came back from the aroma. Soft tannins and a bit of acidity make this wine good for a different variety of pairings.
