Vinification: continuous maceration at 25º C during 2 weeks to preserve the primary aroma of the fruit and not extract to much tannin on the palate.

Food pairing: Enjoy this incredible value-for-money Mediterranean-style wine on its own or with roasted or grilled red meat or game bird dishes.

Serving temperature: Best served at 16-18 °C.
