The vineyards are planted on red clay soils with underlying brown or crystalline limestone, with some schist outcrops. They thrive under a Mediterranean climate, with large thermal fluctuations and hot, dry Summers. After careful canopy management during the growing season, the grapes were hand picked and transported to the winery in small crates.
The grapes were sorted manually, destemmed and underwent pre fermentation maceration. Fermentation itself was carried out in “Lagares” and stainless steel vats with temperature control.
After undergoing malolactic fermentation, the wine spent 7 months in stainless steel vats. Once bottled, the wine was then aged for a further 6 months in our cellar. In order to maintain its unique characteristics, this wine has not been stabilised and may create sediments naturally.
Clear, deep violetred wine, with aromas of blackberry, black cherry and plum. Intense, complex, fresh and elegant, rich tannins and long finish, this wine has great potential for storage and ageing.
Between 5 and 15 years, if stored in a cool and dark place with the bottle lying down.
Red meat, game, strong cheese and sausages. Serve at a temperature of 16-18ºC.
