Description Intense red colour. Very fruity; notes of redcurrant, strawberry and plum. An elegant and charming wine with amazing, sweet and silky tannins. The aftertaste is long and very fresh.
The grapes, which were previously de-stemmed, went through a pre-fermentation maceration at low temperatures for 12 hours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks during 10 days, not exceeding 25¼C. The aging and malolactic fermentation occurred 50% during 15 months in used French oak barriques.
