This wine is intense ruby red in colour, with aromas of ripe and dried red and black berry fruits. It shows wonderful complexity on the palate, with a core of fruit and spicy notes. The tannins are persistent, and with time will soften nicely. This is a wine with great balance, elegance and complexity which will develop nicely in the bottle. We recommend drinking this from 2024.

Production Notes

Cold pre-fermentation maceration took place for 16-20 days in stainless-steel tanks with two pump overs every day. Fermentation was then carried out at temperatures of 30-32°C for 25 days, with natural yeasts in the first part and selected yeasts for the second part. Malolactic fermentation took place in cement vats. The wine aged for two years in a combination of used French and Slavonian oak, with barrels ranging from 225 litres to 25 hectoliters. After the oak ageing, it spent a further year in cement tanks followed by eight months in bottle.
