The nose of this wine is bold and fresh with aromas of blackberry, black currant and toasted cinnamon. Opaque colour showing youth. The taste is pleasantly generous and smooth. Bitter sweet like dark chocolate richness. Ultra smooth, soft ripe tannins. Serious, red wine for a red wine lover.
About the Wine

VINIFICATION The grape vintage is done by hand and transported to the winery in small boxes of 25 kg, sorted, stemmed and crushed at the winery entrance. Then follows a pre-maceration at 32ºC for 24 hours, inoculation and fermentation below 24°C until complete exhaustion of sugars.
