Winemaking Notes: Grapes were manually harvested from 10-year-old vines. The bunches were immediately destemmed, crushed in the hydraulic press (basket press), and the must was separated from the skins after 6 hours and transferred into the amphorae. At the end of the the first fermentation (30 days), the wine was racked for the first time and then put back into the amphorae where it remained until the malolactic fermentation completed. After which, it was racked one more time and put back into the amphorae to rest only on the fine lees.
Tasting Notes: Light, rusty red color. Nose exhibits red berries and strawberry jam with a hint of cherry. This wine is medium body with some tannins that can stand up to pork and poultry. Flavors of red fruit lingers long after on the palate.
