Vinification and Ageing
All the grapes were picked by hand and transferred to the cellars in small crates, followed by a careful sorting of bunches and berries on a double sorting table. The bunches were de-stemmed and the berries put into fermentation vats whole, without crushing, and left for a cold soak at 10ºC. The alcoholic fermentation started naturally with the skins’ indigenous yeasts around the fifth day in vat. After the alcoholic fermentation had finished, the skins were left in contact with the new wine for 3 days. The wine was then run off into another vat for the malo-lactic fermentation, which was allowed to occur spontaneously. In January, it was racked into French oak barrels to age for 6 months before being bottled.
It has an attractive cherry color with violet edges. On the nose, very aromatic, marked notes of wild berries, with hints of confectionery, balsamic. The mid-palate is meaty, active, with feelings of berries, cinnamon, spices, violets, balsamic and persistent primary end.
