Description

The grapes are harvested in mid October. Maceration on the skins at a temperature of 28° C, with frequent pump-overs, lasts for about ten days. When malolactic fermentation is complete, some of the wine is racked into French oak barriques, to be blended with the remainder, which ages in steel tanks, after maturation.

Sensory & emotional characteristics

Deep, assertive ruby red; broad, long-lingering aromatics hinting at Parma violets and red berry fruits; intense, persistent flavour perked up by attractively husky tannins and a varietal twist of bitterness at the back.

Food Pairing

Full-flavoured legume soups, mixed boiled meats and thin-sliced beef with rocket.
