Exotic spice, French oak, mature berry, menthol and a floral note are some of the aromas you'll find on this structured red. The ripe, chewy palate presents mature black cherry, raspberry compote, espresso, licorice and aromatic herb while firm fine-grained tannins provide support.
Aging: All the various lots undergo a period of aging in different types of French and Slovenian wood for a period between 18 to 24 months. Final assemblage of the chosen lots, bottled and released on the market after one year.
Winemaking: Each vineyard with uniform characteristics (exposure, age, soil composition, plant gender, clones, etc.) is harvested and vinified separately. 4 – 5 day maceration and another 10-12 to complete fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Drawn off into different sizes and types of wood barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place
Food Pairing : An aristocratic wine that finds its match with game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, saddle of venison, wild boar, deer and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white Alba truffle: cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli.
