On the palate we find the same sensations felt on the nose with enveloping tannins and a harmonious body that gives longevity to this red.

    Processing

    After the manual harvest which takes place in the first ten days of October, the grapes are de-stemmed and softly pressed. The vinification takes place in open tanks in which the must ferments in contact with the skins undergoing frequent pumping over and punching down. Subsequently the wine ferments in steel where the malolactic takes place . Finally, the Schweizer matures for 12 months before being bottled and then rests for a year in the bottle .
