Exposition of the vineyard: South
Yearly production: 8.500 bottles

Merlot was harvested at the middle of September.
The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with a llong maceration over a period of 20 days at a temperature never exceeding 26 °C.
The resulting wine is rich in colour and very structured but soft on the palate, without any astringency. The wine were then transferred to new French oak barriques (Troncais, Nevers and Alliers medium toasting) where malolactic fermentation was completed by the year's end.
The wine were then racked, blended and then returned to the barrels for about 12 months aging, followed by aging for about 6 months in bottles before release.
Deep ruby red colour.
Fruity nose of plums and cherry jam, with spicy notes of white pepper, sweet tobacco and licorice.
Toasted hints of coffee and dark chocolate.
Soft palate, pleasantly salty with round tannins and fruity aftertaste.
