The nice tannin characteristic of the variety blends elegantly into the wine and promises a long shelf life of over 10 years. The guarantee of its excellent quality is that in the Mateo vineyard of only 6 hectares, all viticultural work and the harvest itself is also done by hand. Grape clone number 5 was used for the wine, the harvest was in mid-September. After manual selection and berry picking, it was fermented in unbottomed barrels, then aged for 28 months in 60% new American and French oak barrels. Blackberries, blackcurrants, dark chocolate, Dutch cocoa powder, pepper, violets, good acids, restrained tannins, perfect balance. The Big Wine.
