Intense and deep ruby red.
Complex and intense. Fruity notes of plum and blackcherry, and roasted hints that remind liquorice. Delicate nuances of spices.
The Riflessi d’Epoca 2018 will reveal its full expressive potential beginning in fall 2021, and will continue to develop in character through 2029 and beyond if properly cellared. Best if uncorked and decanted several hours before pouring.
Smooth and elegant. Fresh and fruity, well-bodied with a good structure and tannins of perfect quality and strength. Well balanced, harmonious and persistent at the finish.

The grapes are carefully selected and vinified in the traditional bordelaise method with a long maceration of 11 – 14 days at 28 – 30°C. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is matured for over 14 months in barriques of French oak. Frequent racking from the lees allows for bottling without fining, filtration or other physical stabilization. This may result in a slight sediment in the bottle.
