Winemaking

Cold pre­fermentation maceration and gentle extraction by pigeage (punchdown) followed by a 45 days maceration during fermentation. After fermentation is complete, 12 months of aging in 300 l. French oak barrels and 24 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes

Its intense ruby color and balmy scent of fresh cherries and toasty cedar is framed by notes of Mediterranean herbs. The flavor is spice­filled, mature and suave, married with a vivacious acidity that brings freshness. There is a clear echo of tart summer cherries on the finish overlaying a crunchy minerality.

*Decanting recommended*

Food pairings

Wild boar, duck, risotto, truffle fried egg, cheese boards.
