The most emblematic red wine of Segura Viudas. A wine with body thanks to its long-aging and rest in bottle. However it also has great fruit traces.
We monitor the ripening of our grapes by controlling not only grape sugars and acidity, but also, and above all, the colour and flavour of the skin. When our oenologists consider that the optimal ripening time has arrived, the grapes are picked by hand and taken to our Winery in 25 Kg plastic boxes so that they arrive as intact as possible.
The boxes of grapes are emptied onto a sorting table where any leaf residues are removed, along with any unripe and overripe grapes. After full stalking, the grapes are transferred to 7,500 litre wooden vats equipped with temperature control systems. Every day the cap is manually submerged and short pump-overs are carried out (remontage), maintaining the fermentation temperature at between 25 and 28°C. Ageing takes place in new French and American oak barrels.
Intense cherry red, with gentle touches of purple at the rim of the glass. Intense, complex aromas. Initially there is ripe black fruit of plum and cherry, over a spicy backdrop of vanilla and cinnamon and toasty notes appearing as aromas of coffee. There are also some balsamic notes of eucalyptus and mint.
Great wine to maridate with lamb roasts and mature cheeses. It would also be accurate with foie because of its power, body and elegance.
