Pairing it goes very well with savoury first courses, meat main courses, aged cheeses and grilled fish.

Intense ruby red color, ample bouquet with a slight herbaceous component mixed with hints of raspberry, blackberry, cherry and violet; the taste is soft, with good structure and pleasant tannins. Make it a very fine and elegant wine.


Vinification with cryomaceration of the crushed grapes and fermentation at a controlled temperature in steel, soft pressing

Aging in steel with micro-oxygenation, aging in small French oak barrels for 12 months and permanence in the bottle before being put on the market
