Winemaking

Manual harvest, traditional vinification with destemming and soft pressing, maceration at controlled temperatures obtaining a wine of good color and aroma. 

Tasting Notes

Stewed raspberry, with plum, cranberry and hints of forest floor on the nose. Concentrated and complex, yet medium bodied and smooth. Plum continues on the palate, revealing blackberry, stewed strawberry, and red apple skin. Finishes long, dry and elegant.
