A genuine terroir wine.
A bright and not so deep ruby red wine
Delicate aromas, red fruit and spice notes.
Lively and balanced in the mouth, fine-textured, straightforward and fresh in the palate. Complex character and long finish during which the perfectly integrated toasts resulting from the ageing in French oak barrels can be perceived. It is a varietal exponent of great personality and ageing potential.
The grapes are hand-picked in boxes from 18 to 20 kilograms, clusters are selected, then they are destemmed, and after that the best grains are chosen. The must is macerated in cold for 3 to 5 days at a temperature of 15°C. Afterwards, 50% of must is fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks, with continuous pillage for a smooth removal. The remaining must is fermented in 600 and 900 liter-French oak barrels that are placed on a roller system in order to achieve a manual remounting effect. Once fermentation is finished, part of the wine is aged in second use oak barrels (previously used for Chardonnay) in which malolactic conversion takes place. Once the ageing process is finished, it is blended with the part that has been kept in stainless steel tanks. Then it is stabilized, filtered and the final blend is bottled. It is stored in the winery for at least a year before market release.
Continental climate, with a wide range of temperature between day and night, and well-defined seasons which contribute to a good growth of the vines. The altitude and its microclimate are ideal for the grapes since they provide a unique character. Many hours of good sunlight.
