Product description
Product description
VINIFICATION AND MATURATION: The grapes, are softly pressed in cylinders under pressure gently breaking their skins and releasing the juice. The must macerates on the skins for about a week in rotating stainless steel vinifiers at a temperature of about 28-30°C (82°-86°F). After the alcoholic fermentation is over, the wine undergoes also the malolactic fermentation, a process that lowers total acidity and makes wines seem rounder and fuller in flavour. The wine is then placed to age in large Slavonian oak casks.
COLOUR: Brilliant, attractive and warm ruby-red colour.
BOUQUET: Broad bouquet, with well-defined scents of bitter almonds against a faint background of wild berries.
FLAVOUR: Smooth, full-bodied with notable personality and outstanding persistence.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: 18-20°C.
FOOD COMBINATIONS: The wine can be consumed throughout a meal and makes a particularly fine accompaniment for tasty pasta dishes, risottos, grilled red meat and cheeses that have been aged for moderate to long periods.
