Granitic red clay from one hill in particular. The vineyard is oriented east-west.

Then they were fermented in small open tanks at controlled temperatures of between 22°C and 26°C.Ageing: All of this wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels: 25% of them new Bordeaux barrels, 35% second use and 40% third use.

Features

Color: This wine is deep ruby in colour.Nose: The nose opens with the classic red fruit, such as strawberries and wild raspberries, typical of this noble variety. Notes of vanilla and spices intermingle subtly with a delicate minerality, making this a delightful and complex wine. Mouth: The mouth reveals intense, fruity flavours and tannins which are ripe, well-rounded and integrated into the elegant structure. Long in the finish. The French oak frames the expressiveness of this distinctive and elegant wine.Cellaring potential: This wine can be kept for more than 8 years if stored correctly.
