VINEYARD PROFILE: From grapes growing on the Squarano Estate The vines are 40 years on average and grow with the traditional Pergola system.

TASTING NOTES: An intense ruby red with slightly brick colored reflexes. Typical nose of cherries under spirit and sweet notes of vanilla, spiced with nutmeg and cocoa. Full bodied and warm on the palate, soft yet powerful and incredibly long lasting.

The grapes are de-stemmed and soft pressed in January, maceration with daily periodic pump overs follow for 30 days. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Refinement takes place for 48 months in French oak 500 Litre tonneaux and barriques and a further 8 - 12 months in the bottle. Alc. 16 % vol.
