Bright and intense ruby red with violet reflections. Lazy tears, marking their concentration and consistency.
Mysterious and provocative, it has notes of ripe black fruit, blueberry, plum, evolving into notes of spice, tobacco and cocoa. It enchants by its complexity and strength.
Sensation of vivacity and density throughout the palate. Its ripe tannins provide a pleasant persistence in the aftertaste. A wine of impact and personality.
It fits very well with red meats in general, such as game, lamb and dishes with remarkable flavors and matured cheeses.

Soil and microclimate: Granitic-sandy soil, low organic matter content and excellent drainage. Vineyards: The vines are managed through the espalier system, with a maximum production of 1,2 kg/plant and planting density of 4000 plants/ha. In order to obtain the correct vegetative balance of the plant, green prunings have been applied to establish a good activity of the photosynthetic leaf wall, and the production of grapes per plant has been reduced. Harvest: Manual harvesting with selection of bunches in the vineyard. Winemaking: Elaborated by the Teroldego grapes identified through the plots of soil mapping to compose a wine of unique originality. The fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks, following the traditional winemaking system, during a total maceration period varying between 16 to 24 days. A cold pre-fermentative maceration is carried out for about 60 hours before fermentation. The wine stays for another 12 months in the tanks until it is bottled. This wine takes at least 4 years of thinning in the bottle before being launched to the market. The wine is not filtered in order to keep its natural characteristics intact.
