Selective manual harvest of immaculate grapes. Back at the winery, the fruit is placed in shallow wooden trays and left to dry out for around 90 to 100 days in special drying chambers. During this storage period, close monitoring is necessary to ensure the right temperature and humidity level. Afterwards, the vinification process begins with a cold maceration ('cold soak') for five days to extract aromas and flavours. Fermentation lasts 30 to 40 days – again at cool temperatures. The wine subsequently spends 30 months in large oak casks and small French oak barrels in order to mature and undergo malolactic fermentation. It is then aged in bottle for a further 12 months before being released for sale.
Deep purple. Extremely intense on the nose, mint, oriental spice, and Mediterranean notes. Very aromatic on the palate, with a hint of cherry and black pepper. Velvety texture with tremendous presence. Slightly salty on the finish.
Sourced from plots situated 100 to 350 metres above sea level, where the soils are mainly comprised of limestone, marl and clay.
