Intense purple color. Expressive nose of fresh red fruit along with tobacco and cedar. Fresh attack and a medium body. Finishing with very juicy tannins. Charming finish.
A winter 2010 with a cold July delayed the bud break by approximately 10 days, and that delay was maintained during spring. Summer was colder than normal with limited sunlight and December and January brought some rainfall which was unusual but beneficial for the vineyard after the dry winter and spring conditions. The cloudy summer affected by decreasing lightening, so maturity came at regular but slow pace and we didn’t have the excess of sun that can occur sometimes. February was on the contrary hot and sunny as usual. Fall brought threatening clouds so it was very important to harvest fast, considering the risk of rain. The 2011 vintage gave excellent conditions to produce elegant, complex and fruity wines.
The ideal companion for pastas, pork and grilled red meat.
