The must is fermented on the skins for 8-12 days, before being transferred to tanks to complete fermentation at a controlled temperature of 25-30 °C.

An elegant wine with good structure, showing the characteristic ruby-red hue. The clean nose offers notes of currants and violets, while the elegant palate is nicely balanced with prominent but well-integrated tannins.

Food Pairing

Good with full-flavoured dishes, such as mushroom risotto, herbed soups, pasta, and meat-filled ravioli. It is also a pleasant accompaniment to boiled and roast meats, and white meats.
