in the Cellar

The must has a vinification time of 10 days, with continuous pumping over aimed at an optimal extraction of color and aromas.
The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels where it matures for over 18 months in contact with its fine lees before being blended and bottled.

It is then refined further for at least 9 months in the bottle.

Sapid gloss to herald very long persistence on the tongue.
