In addition to a hand harvest and vineyard sorting, the clusters were hand selected in the winery, gently destemmed, jack-stems removed by hand and placed in 2 ton stainless steel tanks and 600 litter barrels for fermentation. The fermentation was very long and slow, with a maceration of about 35 days. Later, the drop wines were transferred 228 litters barrels of French oak of first and second use and aged during 14 months. This wine was bottled without any clarification or filtration.
This vineyard, 5 km from the Mediterranean Sea, grows on a sea floor formed by fragments of shells of bivalve molluscs and gastropods, which, together with calcareous cement, bring to the wine mineral earthy notes with a fresh acidity. This pure Cabernet Sauvignon, fruit from the Mediterranean sun presents notes of tobacco and smoked wood in the nose, notes of dry raisins, blackberry liqueur and plum marmalade in the mouth. Velvet and friendly tannins harmonize with notes of cinnamon and forest.
