About this winery
Colour: Dark, dense red. Nose: An explosion of red fruit (Morello cherries), peppery spices and wild herbs. Palate: Smooth and full-bodied. Black fruit and spice aromas very quickly begin to tantalise the taste buds. Recommendations: This wine is good drunk young with poultry or grilled red meat.
Fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats to preserve the wine’s fruity aromas, followed by quite a long maceration (between 30 and 40 days) which gives the wine a lovely colour and pleasing aromatic structure. 50% of the wine is then matured in French oak barrels for 15 months to finetune the structure and body, and 50% is matured in vats to maintain the wine’s freshness, fruit and complexity.
