This wine was created from grapes sourced from more than 25-year-old vineyards, with an average yield of 4000 kg/ha. The grape harvest was made in September, at optimal grape ripeness. The alcoholic fermentation of the wine was followed by the malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels.
Once this fermentation was completed, the wine was racked and left to age for 15 to 18 months, patiently waiting for just the right moment for bottling.
There was no clarification or stabilization of this great wine before bottling. Its subsequent bottle aging gives it roundness and elegance, to create this complex, amazing wine.
