Vinification
 
A year before the harvest and winemaking, the grapes from the various varieties that make up the Family Collection, were carefully selected and watched over according to their winemaking purpose. These grapes, which were picked at peak ripeness into 20 kg boxes, were separately vinified. The entire process was carried along by gravity into the fermentation tanks over 20 days with prolonged maceration that give this wine unrivalled ripe fruit characteristics. Its 14-month ageing in new French oak casks give it a wide aromatic range and remarkable balance throughout its long life. It ages in the bottle for over an extra 14 months.

Tasting

We are surprised by its structure, freshness and refined tannins. Complex profile, with a silky and elegant finish.

Pairs well with meat, fish and fusion dishes.

The aroma reveals earthy and fresh red fruits notes, with amplitude.

In the mouth, freshly picked wood berry notes predominate, complexed with notes of pepper and spice .
