Main Characteristics

Vines that have been growing for 60 years on a gravelly soil and manually harvested fruit create a velvety, rounded Merlot.
With its typical ruby colour, to the nose it sends one for a walk in the woods, where one can smell fruits such as raspberry, blackberry, and wild strawberry.
Intense and persistent, when drinking it one is caressed by a delicate woody note that blends with all the fruity tastes, and its persistence gives one that velvety sensation.
