About the Vineyard
The vines grow in white calcareous soils with small portions of clay at 1640/1804 feet above sea level.
The vinification of the grapes is in stainless steel tanks with 20 days of skin contact at a controlled temperature of 79 °F. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks.
Deep ruby red colour, with deep violet flashes. Its strength and complexity immediately stand out at the nose. Blackberry and cherry notes balanced with vanilla scent. Soon there are tobacco aromas, and towards the end balsamic notes, and elegant vegetal notes. Fruity taste, intense, elegant tannins and freshness. Very long at the palate.
Match with tasty red meat and medium and long aged cheeses. Pour into a wide crystal glass. Serve at 65 °F.
