Vinification

Maceration and fermentation in stainless steel vats for 14 days. Ageing for 14 months in 225 L French oak barrels.

Tasting and pairing

Intense, dark ruby colour. On the nose prunes and blackberry, followed by liquorice and graphite. A complex, elegant taste, full and harmonious with long lasting persistence.

"Forget any weedy Bordeaux blends.  This is a ripe and rich expression of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. Bold and full and now hitting its peak with savoury notes, roasted meat, mushrooms. With a flush of fresh acidity on the finish and a hint of bitter cherry on the finish alluding to its Italian origins, this is a mellow and sumptuous wine with bags of concentration, silken, sexy."
