Bottle size and vintage
Seductive and easy to drink, resulting from a Merlot picked at its optimum point of ripeness and undergoing a careful vinification (fermentation in temperature-controlled wooden vats, 15 months of ageing in 600-litre, new and second-wine barrels).
Once the wine is released onto the market, after having spent some 10 months in bottle, it comes over as elegant and most enjoyable.

On the palate it's elegant and well-balanced, revealing a velvety smoothness, with powerful tannins which lead on to a flavoursome finish, gently and pleasantly hinting at aromatic herbs.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC
