Skin contact maceration & (submerged) cap for 28 days. Six months of partial ageing in 250 liter barriques of French & Portuguese oak. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows great diversity of complex aromas, such as red fruits & vanilla. Medium body in the mouth, it reveals again sensations of red fruit, harmoniously integrated with wood notes & fine tannins provided by ageing in 250 liter oak barriques. In the aftertaste, develops smooth & rich flavors, some acidity & complexity, overcoming ripe fruit, chocolate & wood notes. Its dryness & persistence, combined with its fine elegant tannins, put in evidence its great gastronomic & evolution potential. A wine to keep.
