Harvest by middle of September at 25°. Brix follow by alcoholic fermentation in closed stainless steel tanks with gentle cap irrigator for 21 days. The whole lot was aged into 225 lt and 300 lt Romanian new oak barrels, where the wine finished malo-lactic fermentation.
Deep red color, intense flavors of blueberry, dried plums and vanilla hints coming from ageing in Romanian oak barrique. The taste evolves from raspberry to fully ripe black cherry, leading to complex flavors of tobacco, coffee and cinnamon.
It is recommended to be served at 16-18°C, along with spicy food, veal and lamb, mature cheese, chocolate or nutty desserts.
