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 French oak barrels of 225 Lt for 3 months. The wine only goes to consumer after 3 month of ageing in the bottle.
Bright, vibrant but elegant aroma to red berries and a few spice notes. It is a great wine, flavourful and velvety, which finishes elegant, intense and persistent. Dark, bright, with an aroma of ripe red fruits and spices. In the tasting it is delicious, velvety and very intense, with an elegant and very long finish.
We recommend it as an aperitif, or as a complement to Tapas, meat, cod, salmon, pasta and cheese. Serve between 15-18ºC. Share responsibly with family and friends.
