VINIFICATION AND AGING
Vinification takes place in stainless steel with complete control of all processing steps. A fifteen-day cold maceration is followed by a slow alcoholic fermentation that lasts for at least a month. After alcoholic fermentation is complete, the wine remains on the skins for an additional fifteen days (post-fermentation maceration) to fully express the character of the grapes. The wine rests in large 2000-liter Slavonian oak barrels for at least 48 months. Aged in bottles for at least six months.
Intense ruby red color with light garnet hues. The nose opens with hints of cherry, whole red fruits mix with elegant spicy notes, aromatic herbs, tobacco and licorice. Full-bodied on the palate, significant freshness and velvety tannins. Red fruits and spice return, along with a slight savory note. The finish is fresh and refined, in perfect balance with the tannic texture.
A full-bodied wine that goes well with pasta with meat sauces, ideal for bold dishes with intense aromatics. Excellent with cured meats or well-aged cheeses. A wine for contemplation. Serving temperature: 18 – 20° C.
