Fermentation took place for 8 to 10 days, at 25 ºC, with 4 or 5 pumping over daily for 15 minutes each. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine was placed in 225 liter French oak barrels where it aged for 12 months.

Layers of red and black fruit aromas form the nose of the wine, which has hints of tomato leaf. Ripe blackberries, black currant, and blueberry preserves are immediately recognizable on the palate, which is laced with dry tannins from beginning to end. Structured and complex.
It goes very well with roasted meats that are seasoned or served with sauce. It also accompanies spicy fish dishes.
