Dark garnet red. Elegant, round nose with lingering fruity, spicy, balsamic and mineral undertones. Strong, warm body, with powerful aromas and well-balanced flavours. Long, intense finish. Lends itself to lengthy ageing, with a cellar life even extending to over fifteen years. The grapes are carefully selected to make a wine with great structure and longevity. Immediately after picking they are crushed and destemmed, followed by maceration for 22-28 days in special tanks to gradually extract the noble components in the skins. When the ideal rapport has been reached between the extracted tannins and colour, the wine is drawn off and the first rackings are carried out.
