From vineyards with about 25-30 years old, planted on schist soils, grapes are harvested by hand and transported in small boxes of 25 kg. After stalk removal and soft crushing, the grapes were pressed (pneumatic press), the wine was fermented and then defecated, partly in new barrels of French oak, partly in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures, both with controlled turbidity. After fermentation in new French oak barrels of 225 liters, the wine aged in barrels for about 6 months. Then the batch is made??. The wine was stabilized and filtered.

Bright red and very young. Fine and complex aroma, very fruity, the predominant character of ripe berries, like black plum and cassis, very characteristic of this wine, with hints of vanilla from its aging in oak. Tasty, full bodied, complex features ripe fruit with soft tannins and velvety, supported by good acidity, which gives a great balance and a finish thin and quite long.
