Dark red colour, with shiny violet flashes. Blackberry and cherry
aromas stand out, then geranium leaf, salty notes and towards
the end vanilla, liquorice and tobacco. Mainly fruity in the mouth
with a gentle dry, outstanding freshness and a good persistence.
Ideal with meat and legumes soups with a medium fruity olive
oil. To try also with well-seasoned tasty fish dishes. Pour into a
wide crystal glass. Serve at 16-18°C.
Intense rain and mild temperatures during the winter months,
warm at the beginning of the spring, with a few days of sirocco,
then rainy and cool in April. From May to September, the
temperature was below the season average. The mild
temperature favoured the growth of the plant and a good
maturity of the grapes.
The harvest takes place during the first half of September. The
vines grow in medium mixed clayey and calcareous soils at
450/500 metres above sea level. The vinification of the grapes is
in stainless steel with 15 days of skin contact at a controlled
temperature of 25-28 °c (77-82.4 °F). The malolactic
fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks. Alcohol 14.5%
