As soon as the grapes were harvested and transferred to the winery, they were destemmed and placed in a small wooden fermentor, where they were macerated for 15 days at a temperature of 20 to 25 degrees Celsius. Once macerated and fermented, the wine was decanted into French barrique barrels, where it matured for 2 years. During this, 40% of new barrels was used.
Wine is of dark ruby red colour and has a purple hue. You can smell ripe berries, oriental spices, a slightly balsamic note, and tobacco, which is supplemented with a taste of vanilla. With a full and balanced taste, the wine is fresh and warm and boasts a long noble finish with a velvety aftertaste.
Served cooled at 16° – 18°C. We recommend it with venison or with medallions in plum sauce.
