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.
Wine is aged in American, French of Allier and Portuguese oak barrels of 225 Lt, for 3 months. Ageing in bottle a minimum 3 months after bottling.
With a well defined garnet colour, it has enticing aromas, along with a full body and an intense, velvety and persistent palate. Among the many and different flavours we find figs, cherries and Damascus; these are complemented by subtle vanilla from oak ageing.
Excellent by itself or with any full flavoured dish.
