Grape Variety: Merlot, Refosco, Pignolo
Alcohol content: 13.5%Vol
Vinification: The healthy and perfectlyripe grapes are harvested by hand, in small crates, to preserve the integrity of the berry. Carefully destemmed, the fruit is then crushed. Fermentation is carried out with maceration on the skins at controlled temperatures in conical trunk vats. The wine matures in small barrels of French oak. The bottled wine is then aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars.
Colour: Deep, concentrated, ruby red colour with purple hues.
Bouquet: Vibrant and complex with a characteristic generous bouquet. Lovely floral notes of dried violets blend with fruity aromas like marasca cherries, blackcurrants, blueberries, blackberries and wild plum chutney. Balsamic hints of mint and liquorice mingle with spicy sensations of black pepper, tamarind and cocoa beans develop in the glass, with a final engaging note of Kentucky tobacco to complete the array of aromas.
Taste: Stylish, full-bodied and velvety smooth, opening on intense wild berries and candied orange peel. Minty, balsamic sensations of myrtle and sage are enhanced by cocoa powder, allspice and hints of liquorice root. Beautifully lingering, chewy and mouth-filling, with close-knit, well-blended tannins.
