Winemaker's Notes

This wine is made using only grapes from the oldest vines and, hence, those with the lowest yield. Fermentation occurs at controlled temperatures in small tanks, with a long maceration (which is possible due to the extreme ripeness of the grapes). Once the wine has been racked, it is maturated in American and French oak casks for 24 months. Deep ruby red colour with brick red overtones. Good bouquet of herby, black fruit, harmonious palate, with a long aftertaste. Store in a cool and damp place. This wine will continue to improve for a number of years.
