TASTING NOTE: A vigorous, full-bodied deep ruby red wine. Clean and vibrant fragrances of currants, blackberries and sweet almonds on the nose, with notes of vanilla. Big texture, warm and rich, with soft and silky tannins and a long finish.

HARVEST & VINIFICATION: The grapes are harvested from vines grown on calcareous, flaky debris, and stony soil. The best bunches are harvested by hand and left to dry in wooden crates for 4 months. After drying, the grapes increase in sugar extracts by 25-30%. At the end of January the aged grapes are pressed and left to ferment for 30 days, at a controlled temperature. Then, around 70% of the wine is transferred into French oak barrels, with the remaining in larger tonneaux, where malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine ages in wood for about 18 months before bottling and it is aged in bottle for 6 months, before been released.

FOOD PAIRING: Excellent with grilled red meat, powerful game stews and aged, rich cheeses.
