Winemaking Techniques

Cold skin maceration was carried out for six hours before the free run juice was left to ferment in stainless steel tanks for three weeks at 12°C. The wine was left on the gross lees where batonnage was applied for a week. It was then racked and left on the fine lees till right before bottling.

Vineyards

The vineyards lie in deep red soils ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines.

Vintage Conditions

The 2022 season will be remembered for the initial cool weather conditions that made ripening very slow. Phenolic ripeness occurred later and that lead to longer maturation time in the vineyards, creating exiting wines that are full and complex.

Food Pairing

A perfect partner to food especially creamy bacon carbonara and seafood Laska.
