This wine presents an intense garnet colour, revealing aromatic notes of wild berries, spices, toast and smoked food. This combination appears soft on the palate, with an excellent acidity, the tannins are consistent but very velvety and elegant, with a long, irreverent and very challenging ending.
A versatile wine that is a perfect match for fine stews, game dishes, spicy red meat and ripened cheeses.

Bunches were manually harvested and carefully selected in the vineyard and at the winery. After de-stemming the grapes macerated and then fermented in stainless-steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Malolactic fermentation took place in new French oak barrels, followed by an ageing period of 10 months. Only the best barrels were part of the final batch that aged for 15 months until it reached the desired harmony.
