The grapes are vinified separately, according to their variety and origin. The must remains in contact with the skins for a period varying between one and two weeks, with délestage (racking) and frequent pumping over in order to extract the maximum of the grapes’ potential in terms of aromas, color and polyphenols. The subsequent phase of maturation and the final blending of the wines complete the operations that are carried out prior to bottling.
A deep, compact ruby red color leads you in to a nose dominated by red and black fruit notes, with balmy, herb-like hints enhancing its richness. On the palate, the fleshy fruit is rendered vibrant by bold tannins and a freshness that gives added dynamism to the taste profile. The finish offers attractively persistent suggestions of ripe fruit and spices.
An excellent accompaniment for pasta with sauce, bean soups, white and red meats, cold cuts or cheeses.
