Wine specsTasting notes

A classic Bordeaux-style blend, one year old with above average quality, features a typical Merlot flavour with the elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon. It is ready to be consumed, but it will improve over the years, ideal to buy a few bottles and stay “forgotten” in the wine cellar. It goes very well with oven-baked fish dishes and well-seasoned meat dishes.

Wine specsVinification

Harvested by hand and de-stemmed and fermented with the grapes skin for 3-4 weeks, in 1000L tubs with manual pressure and later with mechanical pressure. Aged in stainless steel tanks for 3 years. No additives and no filtration.
