Manually harvested. After stalk removal, the fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature (about 30° C) in stainless steel tanks. The maceration lasts for about 12 days. The refinement is made in Slavonian wood oak barrels for about 10 months, then in the bottle for several months.
On the nose intense aromas of mature red fruits dominate, with notes of blackberry and prune; on the palate it is a full-bodied wine. Its color is a lively, full ruby red. Delicate tannins.
Serve at a temperature of 18°C.
