Tasting notes

Deep red colour. Very intense and complex aroma dominated by ripe black fruits, blackberries, cassis, floral aromas of violet and some spicy notes that result from "elevage" in the barrels. Also, noticeable aromas of evolution in the bottle, all contributing to further complexity. Dense, concentrated wine with well-balanced acidity, firm and well integrated ripe tannins, and a range of sensations of richness and strength. The intensive retronasal aroma, gives it a long and persistent finish. A wine for ageing.

Harvest

By hand to small cases of 15 Kg.

Winemaking

Upon arrival at the winery the grapes originating from old vines are carefully selected and de-stemmed. Pre-fermentative maceration at low temperature with robotized treading in stainless steel “lagares” (troughs) takes place, following fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Pumping over and “delestage” processes are then started in order to obtain the greatest extraction possible through a careful selection limited to the chosen constituents followed by a long post-fermentative maceration .

Ageing

In 225 and 300 litres French oak barrels for 24 months, 70 % ages in new oak barrels and 30 % in second and third year barrels.
