Variety: 100% Merlot
- Dry red wine
This exquisite dry red wine is produced from 100% carefully selected Merlot grapes. The wine is characterized by a deep ruby red color with dark purple hues. The curiosity about this wine is the 24-month ageing process during which the French and American oak barrels were twice replaced with new ones. This rarely used ageing method, 200% barrique, results in an intensive, ripe and complex aroma of black fruits purée, discreet vanilla with mint and clove hints. The taste is rich, full-bodied, harmonious, with an excellent balance, soft tannins, and with a long fruity-and-chocolate aftertaste.
A careful cellaring of several years in bottle under appropriate conditions will ensure the development of its further complexity. The wine is best served at 15-18° C, with red meat dishes, game in piquant sauces, strong cheese.
Decanting prior to serving is recommended.
