Vinification: in red by crushing and destemming; fermentation in steel at controlled temperature for 10/12 days, successive skin submerged-cap maceration for 15/20 days. Racking in small wooden barrels for malolactic fermentation, then decanting and ageing in new small and second/third passage wooden barrels for two years. Afterwards, bottling and refinement in bottles for one year.
Description: bright red colour with light garnet red shades; balsamic, spicy aroma that opens slowly and shows elegant complexity and harmony; very full, succulent and long lasting taste that fills the mouth; sweet and fine tannins that go well with the scent of wood, giving the wine an optimum structure and elegance.
