The vines are grown with spurred cordon and the grapes are selected during the development phase to ensure maximum fruit concentration before harvesting. After fermentation, the wine remains in the cellar for four years before being marketed, maturing in wood and in oak barrels for 12 months. A further ageing in bottle for 12 months follows.
Intense ruby red in colour, it offers the nose aromas of red fruits in jam such as black cherry, plum, currant, accompanied by balsamic notes, licorice and peppery hints. Dried herbs and shades of tobacco return to the palate for a wine of great intensity and full body, soft and generous due to the tannic texture and long persistence.
Undoubtedly the ideal wine for stews and grilled lamb meats, it can best accompany meat, goat and aged cheeses.
