Tasting Notes

Bouquet

A symphonic blend of truffle, forest whispers, and luscious red and black fruits—cherries, blackberries, plums, and figs—with ethereal balsamic undertones.

Flavor

Intense and harmonious, with structured tannins highlighting fruit and spice hints, complemented by whispers of licorice and coffee. Subtly persistent finish with delicate floral and balsamic notes.

Food Pairing

Ideal with stewed red meat or aged cheese, this wine becomes a meditation-worthy choice when aged to perfection.

  • Winemaking includes long skin maceration and daily manual cap punching for superior results.
  • Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks, followed by natural malolactic fermentation in Chestnut oak barrels.
  • Aged for 30 months in Chestnut oak barrels, then transferred to small tonneau barrels for 12 months.
  • After bottling, it matures for 60 months in the cellar.
