The wine is a composition of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from September 28 to October 13, the Merlot from September 24 to October 8, the Cabernet Franc on October 1 and the Petit Verdot on October 11 and 13. The grapes come from 41 hectares of land with an average vine age of 37 years. The wine has matured for 12 months in oak barrels and is vinified in stainless steel and concrete. The wine has an expressive nose, on freshness, with crispy torn fruit, red berries (blackcurrant, strawberry, raspberry). A clear attack, fresh with spreading tannins and a fine structure. Smooth and complex aftertaste with delicious fruity and cinnamon-like flavors.
