This wine has an intense violet color with black hues. In the nose it presents the aromas of fresh berries coming from the Malbec. The Pinot Noir gives cherry notes while the Bonarda intensifies the complexity with blackberries and redcurrant. It has a good volume in mouth and silky tannins that lead to a long and pleasant finish.

Grapes are handpicked from the middle to the end of March. The pre-fermentative maceration in cold allows the preservation of the primary aromas. The temperature during must fermentation ranges from 25 to 28°C (77 to 82.4°F). A spontaneous malolactic fermentation takes place and the blend is made near the bottling stage.
