A special cuvee from the family vineyards.
A complex and powerful wine yet velvety at the same time.
Distinctive ripe fruit and floral characters, reminiscent of violets, dark chocolate, toasted oak, and a hint of black pepper.
The harvest is destemmed and goes through classic vinification with 3 weeks maceration. The wine is then aged for 18 months in oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 1 year old, 1/3 2 years old).
