The fermentation lasts 10 days in concrete tanks, followed by maceration lasting around 3 weeks. After vinification, the ageing process starts and lasts 14-16 months. 80% of the wine goes into oak barrels and, the remaining 20% are aged in concrete tanks, which preserves the fruit and minerality expressed on these granitic soils.

Ideal with fish in tapenade sauce, all meats in sauces, marinates meats and large game with cranberry jelly.
