WINEMAKING PROCESS

Maceration occurs for 15 - 20 days after harvesting at a controlled temperature of 26° - 28° C. Malolactic fermentation follows alcoholic fermentation with further ageing on fine deposits in large barrels until spring.

TASTING NOTE

Ruby red with purple notes. The perfume is very fruity, with notes of ripe cherry, raspberry, blueberry and blackberry.
Good structure and acidity; the wild taste is sweetened by the softness of its tannins.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Ideal with savory pastas and risottos, soups, excellent with beef and game.
