The Ovilos Red is derived from the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal, specifically from the estate’s first vineyard planted in the foothills of Mt. Pangeon. It is a wine with a long ageing process, produced from extended maceration of grapes & ageing in new French oak barrels for 16 months. It is then allowed to mature in bottles for 24 months. It has a deep ruby-red color with exquisite aromas of raspberry marmalade, red fruit & violet in harmony with cedar, smoke & milk chocolate for a skillful blend.
It has a full-bodied, rich flavor with impressive structure & an artful balance between its acidity & generous tannins. With a long finish, it reaches its peak elegance after a few years. It can be cellared for at least 15 years & is served at 16-18°C. Rare rib-eye steak on the grill, select meats grilled rare or medium, lamb or goat on the spit, truffle dishes, dry-aged game, porcini & chestnut paté would pair nicely with this wine.
