With its ruby-red colour but with purple reflections, to the nose it immediately appears fresh and herbaceous. But focusing, one can distinguish a complexity of aromas that recall violets, wild blackberries and a hint of pepper. One finds it again when tasting! Fresh, fruity, persistent - all details that demonstrate how sincere it is, how much this vineyard is left free to express itself. Pair it with game or roasts, especially with other tasty meats.
WINE-MAKING & BOTTLING
The grapes are de-stemmed and pressed. Fermentation follows skin-contact maceration in steel at controlled temperature for 7-8 days. Malolactic fermentation is completed, followed by filtration and bottling.
