Classic fermentation method, involving selective extractive enzymes, which are compatible with the active 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.
Wine is aged in French of Allier oak barrels of 225 Lt for 2 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 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 dishes. We recommend to serve at the temperature of 16-18ºC.
