Vines are planted at just over 500 meters (1650 feet). Hand selected berries undergo a cold soak maceration on the skins prior to fermentation. The wine is extracted by a slow vertical pressing followed by 6 months of aging in 300l 2nd use French oak barrels on the fine lees.
Powerful nose of red currants and black morello cherries with touches of crimson rose. Luscious and fresh on the palate, with round tannins, balanced acidity and strong varietal character.
