Sku: 1886444*

Tasting notes
Of an intense ruby colour with deep brick-coloured iridescences. In the nose it is intense and rich in resinous and spicy tones. On the palate it is smooth and velvety. It is full flavoured and broad. Very elegant retro nasal taste.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 90 points (May 7 2014)
This silky red offers dried plum, tobacco, orange peel and balsamic flavors that mingle over light tannins in a polished texture. Generous yet focused. Drink now through 2018.T.M.

Wine maker notes
Winemaking process: The must was fermented with the grape skins, and was stirred several times a day (this improves the extraction of colour and a constant temperature). Fermentation lasted 9 days and the wine was left in contact with the grape skins another 5. The average temperature of fermentation was 25 C. Aging: in American oak casks (from light to heavy ”toast”, from Ohio and Missouri) during 18 months.
