Winemaking Techniques 

A traditional vinification of the grapes for 12 days with several pump overs during the day and a controlled temperature of 30/ 35 ° C to optimise extraction. After a rest in stainless steel for 5 months the wine matures in oak for 24 months then is left to age in the bottle until being sold.

Pairs with red meats, cheeses - serving temperature 18-20°C.
