About

95

Incense and sandalwood aromas introduce this red, with plum, cherry, iron and tar flavors permeating the palate. Rich and complex, showing excellent harmony, fending off the dense, dusty tannins. Offers a long and resonant finish. Best from 2023 through 2043.

Product Description:

Fermentation starts in stainless steel and maceration is approximately 20-25 days long followed by 8 months of aging in stainless steel. The wine is then aged in 25 hectoliter Slavonian oak barrels for 2 years. All the barrels are blended back into stainless steel for another year of aging before being bottled. The wine stays in bottle for a year before it is released.
