The color is bright ruby red. The nose is very expressive, marked by aromas of chocolate and smoked notes. There is a nice background with aromas of red and black fruits, peppery notes. Hints of ginger and menthol give freshness to the wine. The mouth is well-rounded, elegant, and mineral. The finish is long, fruity and spicy. Harvest by hand, picked when fully mature and also sorted by hand, light crushing and destemming, permanent temperature control during fermentation, traditional maceration (about one month), ageing in big oak barrels and stainless steel tanks during 12 months.
Blend: 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre
Roses, fresh black cherries and brackeny notes on the nose. Elegant palate with fine smooth tannins. Good freshness, length and balance. Quite classical. Drink now.
