Spring of 2014 started with heavy rains in March. April instead was sunny and warm while the month of May showed a greater than average amount of rain that has allowed the plant to accumulate water reserves important to meet the summer. The months of June, July and August were warm without peaks and sultry interspersed with some rain that allowed the plant to not go to water stress. Finally in September cool but sunny weather brought the grapes to reach optimum ripeness and concentration of aromas.
The wine is ruby red with violet reflections and spicy aromas of blackberry. On the palate, ripe berries lead to spices and sweet oak on a full body with firm tannic structure.
A delicious companion with full flavored meats, game and roast.
