General information

The 2015 harvest exceeds the two previous harvests in quantity. The year has passed with a favorable climate, resulting in a vegetative cycle that allows a good vintage to be expected. Both the summer months and the time of harvesting have been marked by more rain than expected. Once again, the preventive treatments carried out in our vineyards, such as thinning of clusters and defoliation, have allowed us to obtain a quality grape.

The optimal time to carry out the harvest is at its beginning on September 23 with white and its continuation with ink until it ends with good prospects on October 22.

Tasting notes Imperial reserve

Intense cherry color layer with beautiful purple reflections. Attractive aroma of berries, violets and licorice with memories of the Atlantic forest where notes of clove and cigar leaf also appear. In the mouth we are struck by its softness and finesse. On the tour we appreciate meatiness and volume, all in perfect balance with a silky tannin that makes us reach a long and balsamic aftertaste where the aromas intermingle to make this wine have elegance and personality and can pair perfectly with fish.
