With a medium, but structured body, and full, but fine tannins, the wine goes well with roasted red and white meats, casseroles with tomato sauce and with hard cheeses. The wines that are distributed have been matured for 10-12 months in French oak barrels and have rested for at least 6 months in the bottle. The annual production is approximately 40,000 bottles and the wine can be kept for 5-8 years.
