Winemaking Notes: Complete fermentation of the sugar took around five days, followed by a maceration period of about 20 days, which depending on the grape variety. The blend is achieved to reach the typical fruity-spicy character of this wine (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Carménère) but also to bring nice structure and a layer of complexity (Arinarnoa, Petit Verdot). The wine matured in coated cement tanks until bottling.
Tasting Notes: Deep ruby. Aromatic nose with very spicy hints of curry, pepper, nutmeg and green pepper. Delicate and fresh but aromatic in-mouth texture with lingering taste of black fruit and licorice. Pair with red meat and grilled meat.
