The must is then left to ferment slowly with the maceration of the marcs for 25 days

Bright burgundy red color; intense, vinous bouquet, alcoholic, ethereal and full, with distinct vanilla scents and hints of almonds and oak wood. The taste is dry, of moderate acidity, with a pleasant tannic substratum, austere and full-bodied.
It is perfect with roasts, grilled meats and sharp, seasoned cheese varieties.
