Wine tasting notes

Garnet red cherry with intense aromas that are, fragrant and complex. Notes of mature red fruits, balsamic, truffle, vanilla and toast. On the palate it is vigorous, fresh, and silky with a good presence of mature tannins and a development of complex aromas. A serious, intense red that is some way from its peak of maturity. Dense, smoky and complex, with plenty of grip and acidity.

Vinification Notes

The grapes are traditionally 100 % destemmed. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature between 28 and 32º C with indigenous yeast selected from their own vineyards. Extended maceration on the skins for 14 days, with two pump-overs daily to begin with. During the maceration, the pump-overs are reduced to avoid the extraction of the bitter and vegetative characteristics. The wine ages for 24 months in American oak Bordelaise barrels, 25 % new oak, 75 % maximum of 3 year old barrels.
