Tasting Notes

Complex aromas of dark berry fruit, tobacco and black pepper, joined by a smoky minerality and cedar notes coming from the well integrated use of oak. Enjoyable while young, it has sufficient structure to develop greater complexity over the next 15-20 years.

Production

The grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed. A pre-fermentation maceration of 4 days was carried out at below 10°C. Spontaneous fermentation with ambient yeasts at a moderate temperature (25-27°C). After 12 days, the alcoholic fermentation was completed and the wine underwent an extra 7 days of maceration. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in tank before racking the wine to 5,000-litre Austrian (Stockinger) foudres for ageing.

Food Matching

Superb with red meats such as lamb or beef, pasta dishes and some Indian meals that are not too hot and spicy. Also a perfect partner with cheese.
