The wine is transferred to small French wood containers, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and remains for a least 3 months. During this period the wine is racked a few times to make it clearer and prepare it for bottling. Ageing at least 6 months in bottle.
Intense and thick ruby red colour. Complex on the nose, reminiscent of fruits of the forest jam, sweet spices, thyme and cocoa. Full-bodied. Excellent balance between alcohols and polyalcohols, acids and tannins, with a persistent finish and a pleasant sweet, fresh and fruity follow-through. It goes well with mature cheeses, red meat and game.
