Second ten days of September
Vinification: the fermentation is traditional style, with a maceration of
7-8 days at a temperature of 23-25° C.
Ageing: after refining (4-5 months in stainless steel), the wine is bottled in
the spring following the harvest. Further ageing in the bottle improves
its balance and harmony.
The result is a lightly-coloured ruby – almost cherry – red wine, with garnet
highlights which become more marked after a certain period of
ageing. It has a spicy, herby nose, which is clean-cut and elegant with
traces of cherries and strawberries. Its dry taste is slightly tannic, but fresh
and pleasantly almondy, well-balanced and harmonius.
Excellent served with hot starters, pasta, vegetables and not overly-elaborate meat dishes, it is also a fine everyday table wine.
