Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
The rich soil and the mild winter temperatures with low rainfall allow the vines to regain their growth and production balance, reaching excellent ripening during the summer months. After the harvest the grapes are destemmed and crushed, then fermented in temperature-controlled cement tanks with their indigenous yeasts. Malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously. The wine ages in concrete tanks and in large untoasted l barrels, before being blended. This is followed by refinement for a few months in the bottle.
Pairs exceptionally well with red meats, hearty soups, and aged cheeses.
How to Serve
Serve at 64-68°F in large transparent crystal goblets.
Conserve in a cool, dark cellar at a constant temperature, ensuring that the bottle is in a horizontal position.
