. Picked by machine in mid-October;

. Long maceration (a month) with daily pump-over by air during fermentation and immersed marc cap at the end;
. Malolactic fermentation in wood;
. Aging in oak barrels for one year before blending in spring;
. Final filtration and bottling in the beginning of the summer.
Bright and intense garnet-red color;
The nose, a bit shy at the beginning, blossoms with red and black fruit flavors after a short airing. Then, vanilla, licorice and charred wood notes emerge;
Full-bodied and generous mouth, red fruit driven, with a nice tannin structure and long after-taste.
Decanted a few hours, this wine matches with:
. Tasty red meat;
. Strong and aged cheese.
