WINEMAKING AND AGING
Grapes destemmed; the maceration on the skins; the fermentation at the controlled temperature (26° -28°C ) in stainless steel tanks. During this period, daily remontages are carried out to favor the transfer of noble tannins and color from the skins to the fermenting must. Malolactic fermentation. Aging in stainless steel vats for conserving its ‘green’ characteristic.
Color: Ruby red color with violet reflections.
Nose: Typical grassy and intriguing mint impact on the nose with hints of red fruit salad taste.
Palate: Well-structured, crispy, slightly tannic, and persistent with a light noted of violet.
Perfect accompaniment to grilled meats, lamb chops, cold meats, sausages, sliced meats as well as an aperitif with friends.
