Produced by selective harvesting of the most valuable parcels, with a vine average age of 37-40 years. The three varieties that make up the blend are processed separately. The grapes have been selected on a fixed sorting table and have been processed through a spared flux. A classic winemaking method has been used, on marc, in small stainless steel tanks, at 26-28 oC. Cabernet Sauvignon – 30 days, Merlot – 22 days, Fetească neagră – 20 days. The malolactic fermentation in barriques has been completed immediately after the alcoholic one. Quantitatively, 85% aged in Romanian oak barrels (225 litres) for 9-10 months, 15% in stainless steel vessels. Bottle aging for a minimum of 24 months.
