Wine

Intense ruby colour, the aromas recall kirsch, resin, blackberries, coffee, wild-strawberry and morello cherry. Soft and warm in the palate, it has good tannin-acidity harmony and the long finish is remarkably fruity. Surely, this is an impressive wine with great ageing potential.

Alcohol

Vinification: Manually harvested during the first decade of October. Destemmed, fermented in open-top vat with no temperature control. In the beginning the juice is pumped over the cap frequently. The wine aged for 24 months in French barrique (225 litres).
