Alcoholic strength: 14%

The vineyard in which the grapes for this wine are grown is on the steepest parts of the hillside, where vine cultivation and harvest are necessarily manual tasks requiring great physical effort. However, this makes it possible to combine innovation and tradition in order to create an important wine. The product thus obtained is matured in large barrels, and it also undergoes the more innovative technique of ageing in small barrels. The ageing process continues after bottling. This wine is hallmarked by its international style, even though it maintains its own particular identity based on its local origins and terroir. It has a strong character, with long ageing potential, and, most importantly, it delivers great pleasure in drinking.

The colour of this wine is deep, intense ruby, with violet reflections. Its bouquet is complex with perceptible boisé, hints of coffee and cocoa, and undertones of vanilla. The range of fragrances that it expresses is completed by delicate vegetal notes, and plum and greengage jam. The elements of bouquet typical of the grape variety are perceptible, and they are well coordinated within the overall sensorial structure. On the palate, the wine is well-rounded, warm, complex and very smooth, with hints of spice and vanilla. It has a remarkably long finish.

This wine is the perfect accompaniment to complex recipes, red meat and game, and strongly-flavoured cheeses.
