Oenological
practice

The grapes are selected and placed in 6 kg trunks to rest in our orchards to rest for a long period. During the drying period, a sequence of biochemical processes carried out by microorganism like Botritis Nobile, transform part of the sugar into glycerine.

After crushing the grapes, the long maceration and month-long alcoholic fermentation, the result is a very structured and incredibly rich in aromas wine. 4 years of ageing in oak wood barrels follows, where it completes its malolactic fermentation.

Tasting
notes

Very deep ruby red colour. Broad bouquet with notes of cherry, dried fruits, vanilla, and a clear hint of black pepper and liquorice. The taste is full, with an exceptional strength but incredible elegance.

Food
pairings

A meditative wine to be paired with 90% dark chocolate, game, or aged cheese, in keeping with tradition.
