Vinification:after a careful destalking the tumultuous fermentation takes place in 4-6 days under constant temperature control (max.25°C), short but frequent remounts and racking for about 8 days.  The wine-making process, the malolactic fermentation and great part of the aging process (which finishes with a period in wood) takes place in stainless steel containers during  a 6 month period.

Organoleptic characteristics: maximum expression of the varietal characteristics, the intense ruby red color predominates with violet reflections.

The winey perfumes of exuberant freshness are accompanied by enjoyable notes of fruit like peach, blackberry as well as flowery perfumes of wild violets. Enjoyably captivating in the moth with the right balance between vintage readiness and soft tannins make this wine easy to appreciate even at a young age.

Pairings: very versatile wine which pairs well with meat appetizers and first courses as well as with cheeses that have been somewhat aged.
