The Winemaking Process – The fermentation process occurs in cold temperature in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the scents and flavors of the fruit. When this process is complete, the wine is soaked on grape peels in cold temperatures for a period of two weeks to make the most of the aroma and flavors of the peel. After that, the wine undergoes initial decantation and an aging process for about ten months in American Oak barrels, most of which are new. Then, the wine is roughly filtered to preserve as much as possible the aroma and tastes after which it is bottled and kept in the winery for a period of three months before going on the market.

Color – A deep, bold and clear red color is reached by roughly filtering, stabilizing and closely supervising the wine so that it doesn´t get damaged by oxygen.

Serving Recommendation – The wine should be served at 16 degrees Celsius.
Due to its soft tannins and delicate acidity, it will go wonderfully well with hard cheeses and low-fat meats such as sirloin and chicken. A medium-full body allows its combination with light dishes such as pasta and salmon.
