Fermentation took place for 7 days under strict controlled temperature environment.

  • Tasting notes:Opaque, with deep purple hints in colour.Complex and intense on the nose, showing fresh berry fruit aromas, elegant floral notes and hints of fresh spice. Engaging and elegant beginning that leads to a voluminous and powerful wine, which combines round, finely-textured tannins with notes of fresh berry fruit. The finish is lingering and balanced.
    A charming, distinctive wine that will evolve in the bottle for many years.
