Harvest period: early October
Harvest method: Manual
Vinification: The bunches were carefully destemmed and the fruit was then crushed. Fermentation was carried out with maceration on the skins at controlled temperatures, in stainless steel containers. The juice was pumped over the cap frequently for about three weeks, in order to extract colour and aroma compounds from the skins. Pressing was carried out after fermentation.
Ageing: The wine is racked into small French barriques where it aged for roughly 12 months. Bottling took place in April 2007. The bottled wine was aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for a minimum of four months.
Sensory characteristics:
Appearance: intense ruby red, almost impenetrable with lively violet hues

Nose: complex, elegant, very intense and articulate; notes of red fruit with strong presence of small black berries integrated into forest understory, raw meat, sweet spices.

Palate: full, mouth-filling, soft, good structure, dense tannins integrated into a presence of sweet fruit. Good fluidity balanced with a pleasant acidity and freshness; fruity aftertaste and intensely spicy.

Serving suggestions: Red meats, roasts, feathered game and mature or moderately mature cheeses.
Serving temperature: 17 - 18 °C
