Winemaking: The grapes are allowed to raisin naturally on the vine to concentrate the sugars and aromas, and are harvested late, destemmed and gently rolled. The resulting must is allowed to macerate for a few days on the skins (at a constantly controlled low temperature), then pressed and fermented in small 225 litre barriques of second and third ll. Once the desired alcohol and residual sugar concentrations have been achieved, fermentation is arrested with careful use of cold. After separation from the residues of fermentation, the wine rests in barriques for more than a year, during which time it matures and acquires, in part, the aromas of the wood. The wine is bottled in the month of February, but is only presented to the consumer after a suitable resting and maturing period in the bottle.
Size: 500 ML
Tasting Notes: A vinous, distinctive and alcoholic bouquet with delicate honey and vanilla notes from the barrique aging. The palate is sweet, corpulent and robust with a slight tannin component, typical of the variety, supported and closed by a combination of mixed tastes and flavours from the barrique.
