The grapes are painstakingly selected by hand before being vinified separately and then left to mature in French oak barriques for between 9 and 13 months. The two varieties are kept separated through the all process and once blended, the wine is aged for a further three months in 35hl barrels, followed by another year in the bottle.
Color: deep ruby red with garnet reflections.
Nose: rich in bouquet and persistent, with hints of red berries and spices like cocoa, vanilla and coffee.
Palate: warm and well-balanced, with a consistent structure of tannins which support the long finish of the wine.
Meeting all the criteria for successful long-term ageing, it pairs structured sauces, read meats and game dishes and dry cheeses. Serve at 18°-20°C.
