Description: A vivid orangey-brown colour. On the nose, it reveals aromas of ripe and honeyed fruit combined with fragrant notes of vanilla. A smooth and round palate, full of rich and enveloping flavours.

Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. Made by blending wines of different harvests, with different levels of maturation in stainless steel and wood for a minimum of 3 years, the result is a rich and aromatic wine, with the perfect level of sweetness.

Food Pairing: Well fresh, it is the ideal aperitif to be served with dried fruits. Combines perfectly with a large variety of desserts with caramel, coffee, apricots and dried fruits. Magnificently with caramelized nuts, tiramisu, hazelnut meringue pie and brie cheeses type. The multiplicity of possible harmonies is superb, having the consumer the pleasure to go in search of new flavours.
