Notes of red berry fruits and violets with tight, but silky tannins. The finish of red fruit is long and persistent. Ideal with hearty stews and big red meat dishes. It's also delicious on its own, for after dinner. Fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature, the wine the macerates with its skins for about 1 month. Aged in medium and large oak casks for 2 years, followed by additional 12 months in bottle.
