The wine is aged in big Slavonian oak barrels (50 HL) for 2 years, where also the malolactic fermentation occurs. After the blend is made, the wine ages in oak barriques of 225 Liters for other 4-6 months.
Color: Intense ruby red color
Nose: The bouquet is intense, rich, with hints of mixed berries with vanilla aroma, as well as shades of chocolate, coffee beans, and licorice.
Taste: Vigorous and robust, well-structured, full-bodied and balanced. An intense and complex taste with powerful tannins, and a pre-long after-taste that amplifies its elegance. Marked aromas of black fruit, ripe plum, cassis and blackberry.
Perfect with fine first courses but also goes well with grilled meats and stews; one can even pair it with aged cheese and liver pâté.
As a teaser, try it with a piece of dark chocolate and a cigar.
