Vinification Method

Classic fermentation method with destemming and pre fermentative skin contact followed of the application of dry yeasts. Fermentation up to 30º C in the first 2/3, and lowering down to 20º C during the last 1/3. During the whole fermentative process, pumping over 2 times per day, using each time half of the volume contained in the vat. After the alcoholic fermentation, the cap is plunged for 30 days, and during that period, extraction of the gentle tannins is conducted, along with the malolactic fermentation and the natural stabilization of the wine.

Ageing

Wine is aged in American, French of Allier and Portuguese oak barrels of 225 Lt, for 9 months. Ageing in bottle a minimum 9 months after bottling.

Tasting Notes

Want dense tannins? Then this is your wine. Of course it has much more than that. It has mineral-driven stone fruit flavours, a sense of terroir, of restrained power. It also has a serious side, and definite aging potential. Tasting notes from Wine Enthusiast; 92 points. Awarded the #29 Enthusiast wine of 2011

How to Serve

A great wine for great moments and exquisite gastronomy. It's the perfect match for an elegant reception, family meetings, perfect with any meat recipe or fish in the oven, and all the type of dry and matured cheeses. We recommend to serve at the temperature of 16-18ºC.
