Vinification The grapes of each variety are harvested and vinified separately. After being crushed and destemmed into granite mills, they are trodden on foot. Subsequently, they are transferred to vats where fermentation takes place for eight days. After alcoholic fermentation, part of the wines undergo malolactic fermentation in barrels. The aging takes place for 16 to 18 months in 50% new and 50% used barrels.
Test Results Very concentrated in color. Nose of great depth, complex, with many aromatic nuances, without any aroma overlapping another. The tasting is vibrant, in a set of great elegance, excellent integration of the wood, surprising for the wide variety of flavors, with a very long finish.
