Vinification Method: Destemming, no crushing, cold soak-skin contact under controlled conditions, alcoholic fermentation at gradual increasing temperatures, delestage, maintenance of wine “sur lies” for four months with regular stirring. Maturation for at least four months in the cellar.
Tasting Characteristics: Bright ruby color in the glass with purple hues. Cool aromas of red fruit with plum and cherry like you just cut it. Strawberry in more tummy form, blackcurrant and raspberry complement the fruity side of its character. Moderate volume body, as cool as the nose, with subtle fruity flavours being supported by soft tannins and balanced acidity. The long lasting fruity aftertaste leaves the cherry in the mouth for quite a while.
