Grape Variety: Listan negro, Negramoll; Castellana
Features: Harvest is carried out 100% manually in October, after the vines’ natural maturation process has finished. Grapes are hand-picked into 20 kg crates, which are later left to sun dry for a few days to increase levels of concentrated sugars. The grapes are then de-esteemed and placed in stainless-steel tanks for 48 hours at -10º C, then macerated for 20 days at 25º C, until the yeasts no longer ferment due to alcohol pressure, stopping the fermentation process naturally. Finally, and after 10 months of aging in American oak barrels, the wine is clarified, cold stabilized, and bottled.
Tasting Notes: Red-garnet colour is shown, from middle to high layer, with lingering violet rim. Complex aroma, with changing notes of jam, black currant, balsamic, and spices. This is a wine that speaks for itself. Starts with a slightly sweet and gentle attack, followed by a silky and broad taste, with the right acidity needed for a fresh and elegant balance. Very soft tannins, enough to add persistence and prolong the wine’s flavor.
Food Pairing: This wine pairs well with soft entrees, as well as desserts, like hard cheeses and cakes. Best served at 16-18º C. Store horizontally in a cool place. Consume within 10 years.
