Our prestigious "Emotion" blend is 100% Merlot, from the old vines grown on the limestone plateau.
After a drastic selection at the vine and in the cellar, the malolactic fermentation takes place in new barrels and the wine is aged in barrels for 18 months.
A dense garnet-red colour with violet highlights, the Emotion blend is characterised by intense bouquet of black fruit, spices, along with roasted overtones, and vanilla and humus notes. It is concentrated on the palate, yet powerful and perfectly balanced. The velvety structure follows through to a long-lasting finish, a testimony to its great capacity for ageing.
