This wine would pair nicely with Mexican foods or Italian dishes. Even barbequed meats and smokey dishes as well.
A clear, brilliant, intense cherry red with a fine layer of deep-red tinges. Intense black fruit, currant, blueberry and blackberry, fruit compote and notes of violets, in perfect ensemble with aromas from the barrel ageing, cacao, pepper, clove and high roast coffee. Fleshy, powerful and rounded. Sweet tannins providing subtlety and persistence. Agreeable and unctuous.
The grapes come from our own old dry-farmed vineyards, with the head-pruned in the traditional goblet manner. The fruit is obtained at its ideal point of maturity by rigorous hand-picking in each vine plot individually. After the grape harvest, the wines are left to macerate for 30 days, and then put into new French oak barrels for ageing for over 18 months. They are constantly monitored in the barrel, with racking taking place in spring and autumn, the barrels being frequently refilled. Finally, they are fined and bottled.
