Deep red color with lively red tints. Complex aromatics of laurel, white pepper, gooseberry marmalade, leather and sweetish wooden background (vanilla, chocolate). Balanced finesse taste with soft tannins. Superb powerful structure supported by great equilibrium of alcohol and acidity. Long and pleasant finish.
The grapes after being destemmed were firstly cold soaked and then whole berry fermented to dry.
The wine was then racked into French oak barrels for about 20 months.
The bottled wine ages for another 20 months becoming well-balanced and available for consumption. To keep all the richness of color and taste the wine is not processed by intensive filtration or cold.
Ready for drinking now and will last for another 15 years getting more balanced. Decanting for 1 hour before drinking is recommended.
