Each variety is vinified separately in order attain optimum ripeness then aged for 14 months, with the separate vinification process aimed at enhancing the virtues of each variety.

After the final blend, the wine is aged for four months before bottling in French and American tattooed oak barrels – a first for the wine world, claimed the producer.

“This wine represents a commitment with our origins. We combine the most traditional and the most advanced practices in order to achieve a genuine quality wine with a unique personality,” he said.
