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 7 years in oak barrels and at least for 4 more years in the bottle to develop its complex character. Ageing potential: Ready to drink now, but with exquisite potential for further ageing. Characteristics: Pale red colour with orange hues. Aromatic notes of dried fruit (plum, fig, raisin), chocolate, hazelnut. Rich, complex with a sweet feeling, balanced with the character of its development. Long-lasting and elegant after-taste. Excellent if consumed alone, otherwise it may be paired with salty dishes (spicy cheese dip), syrup desserts and chocolates.
