Winemaking: The clusters were hand-harvested and carefully sorted at the

place in small stainless steel open-top tanks (lagares). The cap of skins were
punched down dailly to maximize the varietal character and complexity. After
malolactic, the wine was transferred to new french oak barrels (100%) for 18
months. After bottling the wine ages in the cellar for another 18 months.

Tasting Notes: Powerful wine, deep aroma with black fruits, praliné, chocolat,
smoky aromas and luxurious oak. Intensity, concentration and sophistication
define this wine. A great wine to share in a special moment!
