Jammy taste, of cherry and red fruits like cranberry, pomegranate and cranberry. A well-rounded and full-bodied wine, with soft, velvety tannins, and a very good bottle-aging potential.

Winemaking process: The grapes used in the creation of this wine were selected from parcels of vines 30 years old, with less than 6 tons per hectare harvested. After the selection, destemming and crushing of the grapes, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks for two weeks at 29°C. Alcoholic fermentation began after malolactic fermentation, due to which the wine became velvety, with soft tannins. A part of this wine was aged in oak barrels for 5 months, to get the required softness and the right depth of flavors. They are also aged in the bottle for at least 4 months before being released on the market.
