This variety is highly adaptable, yet prefers deep soils. Its yields must be controlled, the best results being obtained at yields of about 500 g/m2.
The wines have intense, deep colors; they offer aromas redolent of berry and spice; on the palate, they are smooth and supple, with appealing tannins.
The grapes were harvested under cool and dry weather conditions. After destemming, they were left on the skins for one hour, then pressed using a pneumatic tank press, and fermented at 20°C. After this, malolactic fermentation, aging and storing took place in stainless steel vats.
