Harvest and production
This wine is exclusively elaborated in the 2004 and 2005 vintages of the last decade. The grapes are manually harvested, selecting the
best clusters at their optimal point of polyphenolic maturation. At that moment the grapes have the highest concentration of colour
and tannins. The grapes are harvested from unirrigated vineyards which are more than fifty years old and goblet-shaped so the grapes ripen little by little concentrating sweet tannins, aroma and colour, due to their low production.
Once the grapes were harvested, the wine was macerated for a total of 40 days, with the aim to intensely obtain all the concentration of the
grapes, and to round out and refine the tannin.
After completing the fermentation and the maceration the wine was stored in new barrels of high quality French oak. This wine was aged
for 24 months in slightly toasted barrels so as to preserve the grape characteristics. During the wine aging process, the barrels were frequently filled and the wine was racked in spring and autumn.
Finally the wine was fined and bottled.
Appearance: Vivid cherry red core, exhibiting a thin layer of maroon shades. Clean, translucent and satiny.
Nose: Complex aroma of high intensity, ripe fruit compote, cinnamon, cocoa, just-roasted coffee beans and high roast coffee. With time,
floral aromas of violets can be detected.
Palate: Powerful, fleshy, round, sweet tannin, satiny and friendly in the mouth.
Open the bottle before tasting and allow the wine to breathe in the wine glass so it will open up and reach its full potential and complexity.
