(75-79°F). After malolactic fermentation, the wine fines for about 2 months in tanks and then for almost 3 months in the bottle.
Description: A concentrated ruby red colour with glints of violet. The olfactory profile opens into an array of sensations which flit between fruity, balsamic and mineral tones, among which hints of currents, sour cherries and blackberries stand out, followed by a sweet hint of cocoa.
A full-bodied wine, which floods the palate with a gentle and persuasive structure. The tannins crown the equilibrium of the wine.
