Its colour is a bright, deep ruby red, with brilliant purplish highlights. The nose is fresh and very precise; it displays notes of ripe red fruits, raspberries and plums, as well as delicate spicy hints of black pepper and liquorice. On the palate, the tannins are rich yet rounded, making the wine extremely attractive to drink and persistent.

Vinification and sparkling process
After devatting, the wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation in stainless steel before being transferred to mature partly in 30 hl Slavonian oak casks and partly in 500-litre barrels of top-quality French oak (tonneaux), where it remains for around 15 months. This is followed by blending, stabilisation and bottling: this last operation takes place in the summer of the second year after that of the harvest. Bottle-ageing prior to release onto the market lasts at least 12 months.
