FEATURES: Characterized by cold nights due to the proximity of the mountains and altitude, it gives wines of great intensity in color, aroma and structure, destined for premium and aged wines.
A cold pre-maceration takes place 8ºC for 5 days to extract color and aromas and post maceration for 20 days. Fermented in stainless steel tanks for approximately 15 days at 28ºC. 100% malolactic fermentation done directly in first use French oak barrels.
Intense pruplish red color. Flavors and aromas reminiscent of ripe red fruits, dried plums, figs, fruits compote and jams. Has a nose with very subtle floral and menthol notes. Its passage through oak provides notes of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Presence of sweet and ripe tannins. A specimen with an elegant personality, intense in flavor and an impeccable balance.
