VINIFICATION: Pressing: de-stemming followed by gentle pressing with light
crushing of the grapes. On arrival at the vinery the grapes are
chilled 4°C before fermentation. 100% of the must ferments
in terracotta jars. Fermentation starts naturally, without
inoculation. Period of fermentation + maceration: 30-35 days.
Malo-lactic fermentation: directly in barriques without inoculation.

AGEING: In new french oak barrels, for 20-24 months. 6 more months
in bottle.

TASTING NOTES: This wine is an explosion of pure aromas, with hints of fruit
and sweet spicies perfectly blended. To unrwrap them is a
wonderful tasting experience! At the palate the entrance is
supple, warm and mouth filling with a good minerality and
pleasant acidity which balances th silky tannins, giving
freshness and longevity.

RECOMMENDED PAIRINGS: For its rich structure and intensity, this wine matches well
with lush yet simple dishes like wood-grilled steaks that will
balance the tannins while allowing to the multilayered flavors
to express themselves at their best.
