WINE MAKING PROCESS
After selection, the grapes are processed in the traditional way – once destemmed, they are lightly crushed. When the alcoholic fermentation has concluded, a secondary malolactic fermentation process takes place to lower the acidity of the wine. The wine is then transferred to medium-toast American oak barrels (Ohio) where it remains for two years, and is racked every 6 months, using the traditional cask to cask method.
Ruby-red colour of medium-high intensity, with a nose that presents marked balsamic aromas and elegant tones of spice and tobacco leaf. Smoothness dominates in the mouth, adding elegance and maturity to its long finish
