INFO: The vineyard is planted following the traditional plantation methods, in poor granite soils, with large schist outcrops. The entire vineyard is planted following an integrated crop management system. The grapes were harvested by hand, into small boxes of 18kg, according to a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyard.
The grapes were completely destemmed to small stainless steel tanks, where they macerated for 24h at a low temperature, before starting the fermentation with selected yeast. The fermentation lasted for 12 days with gentle pumping for good extraction of color and aromas. After the fermentation, the wine was kept in stainless steel vats until release. There is no oak treatment.
Red, almost violet colour, with the perfumes of black mulberry and blackberries and a light nuance of pine needles. The wine is very fresh, young with a sweet but elegant palate.
