CHARACTERISTICS

  • Vines grown in stony calcareous soils that customizes the product.
  • Fine grain medium toast French oak barrels.
  • Opaque wine with a ripe aroma; black fruit and an elegant “blue” flower (viola) that provides a good continuity with a very “fatty” texture, ample in tannins and with a woody creaminess, it has a toasty prominence that makes it a good-selling wine over the long haul.
  • Shelf life: 15 years.

HOW TO SERVE IT

Serve from 16-17,5ºC.
Decant the wine 4 hours before serving it. Turn the bottle upside down and let the wine splash out of the bottle into the centre of the decanter, then spin it counter-clockwise a couple of times and let it sit.

REMEMBER...

  • Wines are always stored horizontally in a cool place where temperatures don’t go above 18ºC.
  • It is important to open the bottles or decant them before consumption depending on the type of wine.
  • The colour, its intensity and hue, can define the features and characteristics of the wine.
  • Empordà DO is the area where the wind (tramontane) has more impact. A benefit for the health of the grapes and therefore, to ensure the quality of the wines.
