Vinification and ageing
The freshly picked grapes are destemmed and crushed before undergoing fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Maceration on skins lasts two to three weeks. This is made possible by the perfect ripeness of the grapes. Malolactic fermentation then takes place in stainless steel vats and oak barrels, helping to make the wine more pleasant to drink and transforming its sensory qualities. At the end of this phase, the ageing period begins, partly in tonneaux and partly in French and Slavonian oak barrels with a capacity of 20 hl. After bottling, the wine spends some time bottle ageing.
Colour: Deep ruby tending towards garnet
Bouquet: Pleasant, intensely varietal with hints of violets, balsamic notes and graphite
Palate: Harmonious with a tangy, fruity aftertaste of ripe plum
Approximately 14% vol.
Perfect with red and white meats, such as hunter’s rabbit, roast guinea fowl with aromatic herbs or Tuscan-style beef stew. Also excellent with dishes made with game, such as stew or saddle of venison.Download the technical datasheet
