Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this wine come from 60-year-old vines. The soil is frank and stony. The grapes are hand-picked. Cold maceration takes place before fermentation for 48 hours. The winemaking process is carried out in stainless-steel tanks and macerated for 15-20 days. The wine is softly filtered before being bottled. The wine is aged in new French oak barrels, for 14 months. Once bottled, the wine remains for 6 months in the winery's temperature-controlled cellar.
