Vinification: The two grape varieties are vinified separately. The maceration lasts 7-8 days, and coincides with the fermentation period. The cap is managed daily, with a délestage in the morning and a pumpover in the evening. After the wine is drawn off, it goes through malolactic fermentation, which usually occurs in the following month, then the wine goes to stainless steel tanks, where it rests until spring, then bottled.

Tasting and pairing: The colour is purple-tinged ruby red of medium intensity. Its rich, complex bouquet is the result of a perfect blend of fruity essences such as sweet-sour cherry and blueberry, and spicy nuances of cinnamon and black pepper. The distinctive hallmark of this wine is the elegance on the palate. It displays a remarkably soft suite of tannins and a lovely balance between a judicious acidity and full, savoury flavours. It lingers long on the finish. Delicious as an accompaniment to light meat and delicate-flavoured red meat, as well as young cheese. 

Awarded two Bicchieri rossi (runner up score) by the Italian Gambero Rosso.
