Destemed by hand with a rigorous selection of every grape. Cold pre-fermentative maceration.
Fermented in 10 hectolitres oak barrels at 28 ºC. Pressed twice a day. Malolactic in new French oak Bordelaise barrels. Aged 18 months in new French Bordelaise oak barrels (95 %) and Center-European bordelaise oak barrels (5 %).
Intense cherry. Aroma with marked emphasis of tasty notes of oak and black fruit, mineral background. Powerful palate, warm, flavoursome with tannins of oak still marked against those of fruit, hints of great length, mineral back aroma with traces of ripe fruit.
"It has plenty of fine-grained tannin, layers of ripe fruit and excellent balance."
