£15.99

TASTING NOTE

 Deep ruby-red with very marked violet hue. The fine, fruity bouquet is very persistent with clear-cut overtones of plums and cherries. The palate is pleasantly dry, and its strong almondy after taste brings out its fullness and velvety stuffing with slight tannins, making for a highly agreeable, fine balance.

The fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats at a tempertatur of 30-32° C with frequent pumping over of the must to optimize the extraction of colour and tannins.Then the fermentation goes on at a controlled   temperature of 25-26° C till the sugar last.
At the end of the malolactic fermentation (end of November), the wine stays in barriques for four months followed by a short period in stainless steel tanks before the bottling. The wine is released after short bottle ageing.

It is excellent served with hot starters, pasta dishes and vegetables, not simply meat dishes!
