GRAPES AND VINIFICATION

Syrah 100%, from grapes that have reached an optimal state of ripeness.

Cold maceration for two days at about 10 ° C. to encourage greater extraction of both the typical aromas of the grape and the color.

Vinification in red with periodic punching down (2–3 per day) to ensure a higher content in extracts and tannins.

The tumultuous fermentation continues for 10-12 days at a temperature of 26-28 ° C. with the succession of some "délestage", especially in the early stages of winemaking.

After careful racking, with the movement of the dripping marc only by gravity, the malolactic fermentation in steel follows.

Aging in barriques for 8-12 months and 6 months in the bottle.

ORGANOLEPTIC EXAMINATION

Ruby red color with purple hues; intense, persistent aroma with fruity notes of black currant, blueberries and morello cherry, cardamom and cinnamon.

Soft and warm taste, with good tannic texture and return of spicy notes of black pepper in the final.

SUGGESTED COMBINATIONS

Grilled tuna steak.
