Tasting Note

Ruby red color. Aromas of juicy blackberries and plums with elegant notes of spices, leather and licorice. The palate is round and rich with balanced acidity and lingering tannins. Medium to long finish.

 

  • Vine parcels from Zone B (250-500 meters alt)

    • Harvest: handpicked in the end of September – mid October
    • Traditional fermentation for 8-10 days in open top cement tanks 
    • Ferments are hand plunged twice or even three times per day in order to achieve a gentle extraction
    • Malolactic fermentation
    • Maturation in French oak barrels 300 Lt (50% new – 50% second and third fill*) for at least 12 months**
    • Further ageing in the bottle for at least 12 months**

     

    RAPSANI RESERVE is a wine with great ageing potential evolving the depth of its character.

    * The percentage of new and used barrels may differ between vintages. You may download the fact sheet for the current vintage that encloses specific details.
