Vinification

The grapes, selected on the plant, are placed on a single level in small ventilated boxes and dried naturally in the shade in a room exposed to the daily breezes. Once the desired level of drying is reached, it is destemmed manually and fermented at a controlled temperature. The malolactic fermentation was carried out at the beginning of fermentation. The extraction processes were carried out through manual punching down. The maceration lasted 4 weeks. After soft pressing, the pressed grapes were separated.

Refinement

The wine is aged in small 110 liter French oak barriques and in steel tanks sur lies (on its fine lees) until bottling.

Sensory Notes:

Deep ruby red with purple reflections, the bouquet is extremely intense with notes of black cherry in alcohol, cinnamon, candied orange, pot-purrie and tamarind syrup. On the palate it enters broad, sweet, creamy and velvety, with a very dense and soft tannic texture. The taste is made vibrant by a marked acidity that supports it up to the salty closure of Mediterranean scrub with floral returns of jasmine and fruity cedar and carob.
