YEILD PER HECTARE
The grapes are picked when perfectly ripe during the months of September and October.
Grapes are destemmed and soft-crushed, with minimal use of sulphur dioxide. The juice ferments and macerates on the skins for a long period of time, during which the cap is punched down daily. The must is coldclarified by allowing the lees to settle.
80% aged for 18 months in big Slavonian oak barrels and the remaining 20% in French barriques for at least 6 months.
For at least six months before release onto the market.
Brilliant ruby red, with attractive depth and decent length. The aromas are alcohol and fruit-rich when the wine is young, later mellowing with bottle
age into ripe plum fruit layered over a faintly grassy background note. Dry, soft and well-balanced on the palate, it reveals a pleasing bitterish twist in the finish. Good aromatic length.
A classic food wine with rice and pasta in tomato or meat sauces, and filled pasta, as well as grilled meats, poultry, white meats and soft cheeses.
5 years or more.
Available in 75cl bottles and 1.5L magnums.
