Description

Producer Profile

Viticulture

The vineyard is farmed meticulously in the traditional way. It is ploughed using the “four ways” method, which involves repeated earthing-up and earthing-down. Ploughing loosens and aerates the soil, making it easier for rainwater to penetrate. It is also a natural way of eliminating weeds and increasing microbial life in the soil.

Winemaking

The phenolic maturity of each grape variety, depending on each plot and implantation was followed with precision and was lead up to its optimum, while controlling its balance and final level of alcohol. The alcoholic fermentation this year was particularly quick. The extraction was mastered during pump-over, in order to keep the elegance and the finesse of the tannins, while conserving the structure of the wine.

Tasting Note

Beautiful dark and shiny robe, with an intense red, almost garnet. The nose is already expressive, fresh and spicy, combining finesse and elegance. Slight woody with light fruity notes. The palate is frank; whilst the mid-mouth is very balanced revealing pleasant well matured tannins. Beautiful after-taste, quite long, soft and silky.
