Winemaking: the grapes are selected in the vineyard, placed in crates and left to dry in the drying loft. The wine is left in contact with the grape skins during fermentation. It is pumped over twice a day with a delestage half way through the fermentation process.

Aging: two years in barriques and two years in 25hl Slavonian oak barrels.

Tasting notes: Bright red. The clean aromas of red cherry and berries are enhanced by a floral touch. Initially sweet with a nice glycerine sensation in the mouth, it follows a slightly bitter note with a noticeable tannic bite on the lively flavors of red fruits. Classically dry finishes with a hint of heat derived from the significant alcoholic content.

Alcohol content: 16.5%
