Elaboration

Elaboration

In our town, the elaboration of oxidised wines with white wine is usual, so we follow the tradition. This wine is filling the family barrels, a total of 16 oak and chestnut barrels. The aging transforms fruity wine to an evolved wine

Ageing

System “corner barrel”. There is an initial barrel, from which the wine is removed to fill the other. Ten years later, the wine achieves a balance between volume, acidity and alcohol and new aromas emerge: green walnut, mint, nuts and vanilla
