TASTING NOTES Black cherry red with intense purple highlights. Intense, fruity and herbaceous; aromas of cherries, red pepper, currant, blackberries and blueberries integrated with sweet spices and liquorice. Vibrant, long, and well-structured; tannins are well balanced with the acidity; intensely fruity, herbaceous, and spicy aftertaste. TECHNICAL NOTES The grapes are carefully destemmed and the fruit is then crushed. Fermentation is carried out with maceration on the skins at controlled temperatures in stainless steel containers. The juice is pumped over the cap frequently for about three weeks, in order to extract colour and aroma compounds from the skins. The wine is then racked. Maturation in stainless steel and small barrels of French oak lasts for 12 months. The bottled wine is normally aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for a minimum of four months.
