coloured, average depth.
Vine Density: 4,200 plants per hectare.

Production per Hectare: 5000 kg.
Production Technique: The grapes are harvested by hand
and placed in the classic tubs before being emptied into
a special trailer for transport to the winery. After careful

by 13/15 days of maceration, depending on the vintage,
with frequent racking at a temperature of 28°C. Malolactic

aging is in barriques for at least 12 months, followed by a
minimum of 4 months aging in the bottle.
Bottles produced: 4,000 per harvest.
Tasting Notes: An intense ruby red, and a high-impact
bouquet in the delicious notes of blackberry and plum.
Balsamic with hints of laurel and myrtle, pleasant sensations
of white pepper, liquorice and ink. Structure with an exuberant
tannic texture, yet smooth, complex and rewarding on the
palate. Long and extremely pleasant end note.
Accompaniments: A wine for meditation, used as a table
wine for the most important accompaniments. Outstanding
with stewed game, especially furred game, even in sweet and
strong sauces, thanks to its wonderful tannic concentration
that cleans the palate. Perfect for meat that is slow cooked,
for example braised or stewed.
A highly intriguing, out of the ordinary accompaniment for
flakes of 60%-70% dark chocolate.
