AWARDS
Veritas 2000 Silver award

ageing : Ideally 10 to 15 years from date of harvest, but can be drunk earlier.

in the cellar : After destemming bunches, grapes underwent maceration before and after fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Maturation occurred for 16 months in French and American oak barrels, where malolcatic fermentation was completed. Fining preceded bottling. Neither filtration nor stabilization was undertaken in order to preserve the maximum natural complexity of the wine.
