Winemaking report:

The 2017 vintage was a good year for our vineyard. The winter was very mild and the buds burst early finally. During the months of May and June there was a lot of rains, which did not affect the grapes thanks to the wild herbs that grow armonically with the vines to our vineyard. The summer was hot and that helped to the parallel maturation of phenols and sugars into the grapes.

Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts and maceration with the skins during the whole fermentation time, no oenological substances added. The produced wine are aged for 12 months in old barrels. Battonage sur lie for 3 months.

Aging potential:

Potential age up to 10 years. Bottled with a natural cork closure, in order to ensure a unique aging capacity. Ideal serving temperature between 16-18ο C.

Food matches:

Hunting dishes, rib eye, pork on the spit, cuttlefish in wine sauce, beef with barbecue sauce are only some of the dishes which match perfectly with this wine.
