Winemaking
Destemming after harvest with vatting for 15 days. During fermentation, pumping over and punching down are carried out. Aging takes place in barrels for 12 months. Once the final assembly was completed, aging in vats was carried out in order to have a perfect marriage before bottling.


Tasting

In the finish, we find spices and macerated fruits accompanied by notes of mocha and coffee bean.
