Manual harvest from early to mid-October.
Wine making and ageing:
It ages for several months in barriques, then in large oak barrels followed by a period of bottle-ageing.
Solid ruby red with purple shades.
Deep and fruity nose gorgeously layered with plum jam, blueberry and black cherry as well as floral hints of rosehip and violet. Eventually it displays a delicate and balsamic note of eucalyptus and tobacco leaf.
It is masculine, powerful and almost chewable with a backbone loaded with well ripened and quality tannins. An outstanding wine disclosing an endless persistence.
Pair it with aged blue cheese or with ground game and game bird.
