Italy's Appassimento style but made with Spains Monastrell and France's Marselan grapes.
Old vine Monastrell grapes from chalky soils are picked slightly later in the season. A short maceration for just 3-4 days, then pressed and fermented in stainless steel. It is blended with about 10% of the fresher Marselan variety, grown locally, with a light filtration before bottling.
Intense ruby red in colour with powerful concentrated red fruit nose. Floral notes are hinted at on the palate with ripe strawberries giving way to darker fruits, mocha and soft, smooth tannins. Rich and velvety with an excellent balance and a long, elegant finish.
Grape(s): Monastrell, Marselan
