||25% Merlot, 45% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre
||After manual harvesting, which takes place in April, the grapes are macerated at a cold temperature (8 °C) for a week in order to have a greater extraction of fruity scents.
||Alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel vats at a temperature of 25-28 °C, with daily pumping over. The wine then rests on its fine lees for a short period, after which it undergoes a natural malolactic fermentation.
||Twenty per cent of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 6 months, followed by blending to obtain a more complex structure.
||This Blend Rosso is ideal with pate canapés, lamb and game.
