    Careful hand sorting, gentle destemming, then transferred to small, open-top tanks. Fermentation with native yeast at the medium temperature of 79 ̊F. At the last third of fermentation the wine was racked into used 750 liters french oak barrels, where malolactic fermentation and aging was done.
  • Ageing
    24 months in used 750 liters french oak barrels.
  • Tasting Notes
    Very elegant nose, with aromatic intensity, made of ripe cherry and floral notes, well complexed with wild berries and oak. In the mouth it is deceptively light showing lots of elegance and character. With a beautiful volume, silky tannins, it represents the perfect balance between tannins, acidity and fruit.
