This wine is a vivid purple-red in color with a rich and intense bouquet with fruity (raspberries and blackberries) and floral (irises) hints backed by notes of vanilla. The flavor is full, very elegant and balanced with a very agreeable, lingering aftertaste of licorice.
Vivid purple color and a rich and intense bouquet with definite fruity (raspberries, blackberries) and floral (irises) hints backed by notes of vanilla and resin. The flavor is full, concentrated, very elegant and balanced with a very agreeable, lingering aftertaste of licorice and conserve.
Drink over the next 5-7 years.
Vinification and Maceration: the bunches, picked by hand at the beginning of October, were vinified with 20 days maceration and frequent pumping of the must over the cap, at 25ºC; 50% was fermented in barriques where it then remained for a year; the rest was matured for 2 years in French oak casks. After the blending, the wine was bottled and rested in glass for at last 3 months.
