“Of an intense granate red color. Delicate aroma in which mature red fruits, mint, caramel and vanilla blend. In the mouth it has an velveted entrance and good structure with soft tannins. Lingering finish, with aftertaste of chocolate and tobacco.”
The careful management of the vineyard following the best agricultural practices, along with low yields per plant, made it possible to produce high quality grapes for this wine.
After being hand harvested in small boxes, the grapes were lightly crushed and underwent cold maceration for two days. Fermentation then took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. The optimum ripeness achieved in the vineyard enabled the wine to be kept in contact with the skins for twenty days once the alcoholic fermentation had finished.
Aging took place in new and second use French oak barrels for 12 months.
It was bottled so as to fully preserve its attributes. Therefore, natural sediments may be found.
