Technical notes

Vinification: the fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for around 6-7 days at a temperature of 23-25 °C. During this time, the must is pumped over the cap in order to optimize the extraction of the tannins and colour. As soon as the alcoholic fermentation has ended, the wine is racket into concrete tanks for the malolactic fermentation, which is completed by December.

Ageing: a part in big concrete tanks and the other in 100 HL Slavonia oak barrels.

Tasting notes

This is a ruby-red wine with purple highlights. The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plums, with slight spicy overtones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon. Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely-woven texture that merges with the fruit, while a crisp fresheness provides a long, tasty finish. This wine is at its best for 3-4 years following the harvest.

Pairings

A perfect match for starters, cured meats and fresh and medium mature cheeses.
