PROCESSING AND AGING
Manual harvest of the grapes, which are de-stemmed and macerated for a medium-long period. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks, at a controlled temperature with maceration on the skins for about 10/15 days. The aging is done partly in steel and partly in medium-sized barrels. It can evolve and be consumed up to 12 years after the harvest.
Color: bright ruby red.
Bouquet: intense and enveloping, hints of balsamic herbs, chocolate, pepper and Mediterranean scrub.
Taste: soft and savory, fresh and balanced.
Excellent with first courses based on tasty meat sauces, spit-roasted lamb and grilled meats. It also accompanies medium and long-aged sheep's cheeses, especially when served with honey.
