Grape variety is Graciano, vines planted in 1940, located on a 400m facing the South. The soil is poor, sandy, rounded and with pebbles. Harvest is done at dawn so we can keep the full freshness of the grape. The grapes are hand-picked in boxes of 12kg. We do smooth pumping-ups during fermentation and cap breaking throughout the whole process. Part of the grapes are also fermented in open 500 litres French oak barrels. The ageing is done in new and second year French and Romanian oak barrels.
Appearance: Ruby red with high robe, clean and bright.
Aroma: Deeply intense aroma, with an excellent combination of black fruit and spices, prunes, date fruit, black chocolate and toffee scents.
Taste: Well structured, dense, well balanced, with a high concentration of ripe tannins. Long and complex black fruit and spices aftertaste.
