The vineyards are planted on plots of land with different and composite characteristics, as well as with a strong presence of limestone. These areas are also rich in rocks and rather rich in clay and are located at an altitude between 100 and 300 meters. The grapes were hand-picked followed by a very gentle crushing and de-stemming. Fermentation in temperature controlled steel vats and maceration on the skins for 12 to 14 days for the Merlot and 9 to 10 days for the Cabernet Sauvignon followed by pumpovers of the musts and délestages. The secondary fermentation (malolactic fermentation) also took place in steel vats. After the malolactic fermentation the wine was aged in French, and for a small part American oak barrels, for 15 months. The wine was released on the market after a few more months in the bottle. The wine is excellent for immediate drinking but will improve over time.
Colour: Very intense purple.
Bouquet: Thearomas are very long and persistent.
Taste: The palate has a clear and excellent structure with great balance. It presents itself with a good round, kindness and gentleness. An important sensory thickness and no sharp corners.
Longevity 10-15 years.
