Classic fermentation method with destemming and pre fermentative skin contact. Fermentation up to 26-28º 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 French of Allier oak barrels of 225 Lt for 2 months. Ageing a minimum of 1 months after bottling.
A delicious wine. Although the palate is quite concentrated, it presents a surprisingly gentle nature. This wine is medium-bodied and brimming with aromas of black cherries, raspberries and the spicy notes. The finish is elegant and persistent.
Excellent if taken with meals or alone, can accompany any dish well seasoned, for example, baked, barbecue, cheese-based dishes, pasta and vegetarian dishes.
