Expressive, up-front and full flavoured, showing ripe and chunky red fruits, blackcurrant and blueberry with spicy garrigue undertones. The wine was made following a philosophy of minimal intervention. The grapes underwent cold fermentation with selected yeasts, which lasted between two and four days. During the vinification, modern and gentle techniques such as cold soaking were used to extract aromas, colour and structure; no plunging or pumping-over took place. Expressive, up-front and complex, with ripe red fruits, blackcurrant and blueberry supported by spicy undertones of pepper, cinnamon and delicate hints of garrigue. Velvety and silky with concentrated fruit through to a balanced finish.
