Fermentation on the skins for 18-20 days at controlled temperature below 30° C in wide steel tanks (150 hl), in order to obtain maximum and delicate tannin and colour extraction.

Main Features

Deep ruby red with yet youthful hints.

Complex, fresh, full bodied and deep. The spices from the oak are deftly combined with the pleasant fruit.
