It is recommended with roasted red meat and sapid dishes. To be served at room temperature. Uncork the bottle at least one hour before.

Then it continues in oak barrels of 6 to 8HI for about a year. It will be commercialized only 5/6 months after bottling. Vinification Method: The extraction of the color occurs through maceration of the must with the dregs which with the advancing of the fermentation, give the must coloring and scented substances.
