Tasting Notes

Bouquet

The nose is sensual in its complexity, with aromas of forest fruits, sweet red cherries, licorice, mineral and coffee scents.

Flavor

The taste is long, with a complex finish with fine, silk-like tannins and good acidity; dense structure, full of super-ripe fruit.

Food Pairing

stewed red meat, aged cheese, game, and white truffle dishes. Ages into a fine meditation wine.

Production Notes

  • Hand-harvested in mid-October, only the best grapes are selected for vinification. 
  • Fermentation lasts 15 days at 28°C in stainless steel tanks. 
  • Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally in 30hL Slavonian oak barrels, where the wine ages for 36 months. 
  • After bottling, it ages another six months and rests for at least five years in the cellar.
