Black violet color. Baked aromas and flavors of blackberry, black tea, grenadine, and carnation with a chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity full body and a peppery, interesting, long finish displaying touches of dried mushrooms and cigars with firm tannins. A pleasingly chewy red with great structure and balance; pair away!

Product Description:

"The vinification is done following the traditional red technique with daily mixing of the grapes skin for the first 3-4 days of maceration, and then we do a single long mixing at a controlled temperature of 25 °C until the alcoholic fermentation is finished. This first part is then followed by a preparation of the best conditions for the starting of the malo-lactic fermentation. When the malolactic fermentation is completed the wine is then aged into stainless steel tank and and into 500 liters tonneau for a minimum of 36 months. When the ageing is finished, our winemaker does the selection of the cuvéé in order to obtain the best aroma." -importer
