Pumping over the must at regular intervals guarantees optimum extraction of the substances in the skins. Maceration for c. 18 days in temperature controlled conditions. Fourteen months in 225-liter French oak barrels (Nevers, Tronçais, Allier), one-third new, and a minimum of twelve months in bottle.
“Dark ruby color. The major attraction of this wine is its elegance, which caresses the mouth with intense and complex red fruit jam, taking on spiciness and finishing with a vanilla note that coats the tannins, giving a caressing mouth feel. This wine can be cellared over 10 years.”
