Tasting Notes:
Intense violet red color. This wine has a great aromatic intensity, with notes of red fruits such as plums and a soft herbal background of thyme and mint. Round and balanced on the palate, with a sweet entry and good acidity. A juicy wine with soft tannins.

Vinification: After the grapes are de-stemmed, vinification takes place both in stainless steel tanks and concrete pools. After a short cold maceration, fermentation is carried out, checking the temperature, and controlling the extraction daily. At the end of this process, spontaneous malolactic fermentation takes place.

Aging: The wine is aged between 10 and 12 months in concrete pools and stainless-steel tanks. No contact with oak.  

Food Pairing: Leaner red meats, and even lighter cuts like dark meat turkey or roasted pork.
