In the winery
After delivery, the grapes are fermented and extracted in the tank for about 4 days under controlled conditions. Then the alcoholic fermentation is interrupted by adding alcohol, thereby preserving a part of the grape sugars in the finished product. The wine matures for at least 12 months in large oak barrels to develop its complex aroma. Ageing potential: Ready to drink now, but with great ageing potential. Characteristics: Red colour with terracotta hues. Aromatic notes of dried fruit (plum, fig, raisin). Warm, sweet with notes of tannins that enhance its structure. Ideal with salty dishes (spicy cheese dip), syrup desserts and fruits.
