VINIFICATION AND AGEING 
The grapes are semi-dried on trays, in well-ventilated rooms, for about 120 days. The must is macerated on the skins for seven to eight days and vinification ensues at a low temperature. Fermentation is long and slow, lasting from four to six weeks. The wine then matures in 30-hectoliter (792 gallons) Slavonian oak barrels for two years, and for a further six months in bottle before being released onto the market. 

COLOUR
Garnet-red with brilliant ruby reflections. 

BOUQUET
Broad and nuanced, with scents of wild berries. 

FLAVOUR
Majestic and velvety, with richly fruity dried grape tones. 

SERVING TEMPERATURE
Serve at 17° - 18° C. (63° - 64° F.). 

FOOD MATCHES
A wine for accompanying refined dishes (especially prime cuts of meat) and very mature cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own at the end of a meal.
