Fermentation in open vats done about 3 weeks before pressing (pneumatic).Maturation in oak barrels at 100% including 20% new oak barrels (from France) and the balance in oaks of one year for 16 months.

Its colour is a bright brilliant red with black tints. The nose is characterized by aromas of blackberry, cherry kirsch and wild nuances.
