Winemaking

Cold soak maceration and fermentation on the skins in 1.500 liters fudres using indigenous yeast. Colour extraction via  gentle pigeage (punchdown). After fermentation is complete, 12 months of ageing in 300 liters new French oak barrels  and 24 months in the bottle. Decanting is recommended to achieve maximum expression.

Tasting remarks

Gaintus Vertical is a complex and lively wine. Its intense ruby colour and balmy scent of fresh cherries and toasty cedar is  framed by notes of Mediterranean herbs.The flavor is spice-filled, 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.

Food pairing

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