De-stemmed, barrelled for a duration of 20 days (Temperature 30º C). Subsequent decanting to a tank where the manolactic fermentation takes place. Once completed, it is again decanted and subsequently passed to a barrel for beginning the ageing process.
The ageing process takes place during 12 months in barrels of American oak (80%) and French oak (20%)
Appearance: Clean and brilliant of intense cherry red colour.
Nose: Excellent varietal expression, forest fruits and red fruit jam.
Perfect balance between fruitiness and nuances acquired during the ageing, highlighting pleasant roasted notes of vanilla and a hint of balsamic.
Flavour: meaty and velvety, appreciating fresh and ripe fruit (blackberries and cherries) with a pinch of vanilla, coconut, mint and bay. Well structured, refined and long.
Pairing: to accompany elaborate, consistent dishes. Red meats, strong-flavoured cheeses, game, casseroles...
Due to its characteristics, it is a wine of great longevity. Although also perfect for its consumption now.
