A classic ruby-red colour and a nose that emerges with lush fruit notes of tart cherries and strawberries, accompanied by tobacco and black pepper aromas, and a subtle toasted note. The palate is well structured, with tannins that are well matched with the wine’s moderate volume, pleasing juiciness, and good acidity.
Medium-bodied with aroma and taste of sweet cherries and blackcurrants. Finishes with firm tannins and bright acidity.
The grapes were hand-picked, destemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel. Fermentation was followed by post-fermentation maceration which lasted 12-20 days depending on the development of each lot. A third of the wine aged for six-eight months in French and American oak, then stabilized and lightly filtered.
