To the nose this wine is intense. It has complex hues of exotic fruit and soft notes of spices.
Traditional vinification using the reduction technique, this starting right from the harvest; after pressing then follows a maceration of at least four hours, and after this a further soft pressing, cooling of the must and a static cleaning. The fermentation process is now started under controlled temperature for a period of circa ten days after which a cooling of the fresh wine is practiced. It is then transferred for a long contact with selected yeasts before being bottled.
Brilliant, with a most interesting intense and strong yellow glow.
At entry, this is an important wine, well-structured with good acidity. You will note persistence and sapidity with great mineral notes and also a very nice and delicate explosion of exotic fruit.
