Titus Livius

Red wine made with Tempranillo grapes from 75 year old vines. Hand harvested in 15 kilo plastic boxes. The best clusters are selected on the sorting table. Afterwards, they are destemmed and crushed and transferred to stainless steel truncated cone deposits. 

The juice is cold pre-fermented at 24ºC to extract a maximum number of fruity aromas and fermented in deposit for 15 days. A manual press is used in the process to extract the best possible wine without great pressures. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels for a minimum period of 20 months prior to its subsequent refinement in the bottle.

TASTING NOTES

Dark cherry red colour with violet edges. Good fruit intensity, ripe fruit with a mineral bottom. Toasted tones from the barrel which provide chocolate, toffee and spices. Well structured. Long and silky in the mouth with  a great potential in the bottle.
