Deep and intense red colour. The bouquet is complex with hints of liquorice, coffee, cocoa, tobacco and cherry jam. Full bodied, powerful, but at the same time soft and silky. This wine has an unbelievable aging potential being enjoyable since now for at least the next 15 years!

WinemakingBoth varietals are vinified separately with a maceration between 8-18 days. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation in temperature-controlled locations. For the first 12-14 months, the varieties age separately in French oak barriques, then they are blended and aged for 8-10 months. Bottle aging follows for an additional 6 months. Unfiltered.
