The grapes for the production of this special wine are collected in small crates and transported to the natural drying rooms to be hung bunch by bunch on special mats and where it will remain until the grapes have reached the right degree of sugar concentration. Once the drying is complete, the grapes are pressed for 24 hours to obtain a precious must which is decanted before being placed in the small oak and chestnut barrels. The wine goes through a long natural fermentation and is ready not earlier than 4 years of maturation in 100 l oak barrels. Then it is carefully decanted, decanted and bottled without filtration to not lose anything of the richness of this natural wine.
At sight it shows an amber and intense color with copper reflections. The nose reveals notes of apricots and dried plums surrounded by hints of walnut husk, hazelnut and chocolate. Sweet, rich, well balanced on the palate, it still refers to dried fruit with hints of spices, field herbs and a finish of ripe citrus. It goes well with aged cheeses and dry pastries or with a fresh cream ice cream. Also excellent as a meditation wine to drink at the end of a meal accompanied by a good cigar.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 12ºC and 14ºC
