The grapes are harvested by hand using boxes, gentle destemming followed
by fermentation at a controlled temperature of 24°C on the skins for twenty
days. There follow 13 months of Barrique maturing at a constant temperature
of 18°C. At the end of this period, the wine is bottled.
There follows a further long period of refining in the bottle.
Its color is garnet red with violet reflections. On the nose it is intense
and recalls blackberries, and soft fruits of the forest.
On the palate it is tasty, pleasantly tannic, full-bodied, with a long finish.
