Vintage notes

Growing Season 2016 : The mild winter with temperatures above average and the rains of February/March led to an early sprouting of the vines, with subsequent flowering in the last days of April. The hails of may have damaged part of the clusters, lowering the overall production. The grass in the vineyard and the warm and dry climate of July and August have been decisive elements to arrive at a great harvest in terms of quality. The harvest ended the first days of October. Excellent quality of the grapes. A rigorous control of the machining processes has produced excellent wines.
Harvest period : 7th September - 3th October

Tasting Notes

Intense, deep ruby red color with subtle glimmers of garnet.  The wine shows a splendid, full nose with hints of blackberries and pleasant notes of tobacco and spice. In the mouth, the wine is soft with an elegant, fresh finish and a persistent, generous acidity in the aftertaste.  Full of mature tannins and fruitiness.
