MATURING AND BOTTLING
Stored in stainless steel vats. Fined with gelatin and non-sterile filtration before bottling.
Ruby red with purple reflections. The nose offers lively aromas of fresh red berries (raspberries) and black berries. In the mouth, the attack is supple with fine tannins, pleasant spicy and slightly peppered tones coming through on the finish, offering a charming structure to this wine.
Barbecue, beaf, grilled chicken.
