Wine Making & Aging

After careful air-drying the grapes are destemmed and pressed very gently in the first days of February. The grape must and the skins then ferment for a long time. After several rounds of decanting the wine is transferred into special large oak casks for about two years. The ageing continues for a further 12 months in new French oak barriques. Finally, the wines undergo a final aging refinement in the bottle for six to eight months.

Analytical Data

Alcohol 15% vol.

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet red color with a robust, full, warm scent reminiscent of black cherries, licorice, leather and wood.

Serving
Recommendations

With its heady accent of cherries and a touch of licorice, this is the king of gamey foods cooked in sauces. Serve with venison, game meats or aged cheeses.
