Average age of vines: 8 years old
Harvest: Manual with picking baskets (20 kg) to avoid manipulation of the grapes. The raw material must be perfect to produce a good wine.
Tasting Notes: This wine is off-dry and distinguished by his flavours. A magnificent nose is developing with spicy and seductive notes of exotic ripe fruits (mango, lychee) and floral notes (rose). The mouth is large, powerful and always very fresh. The finish is long and persistent.
Elegant, well-balanced, very attractive: a true wine for the gastronomy!
