hand-picked grapes; 20-day maceration in steel vats. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is decanted into 220-litre oak barrels where it completes the malolactic fermentation (after an initial decanting stage). The wine is decanted into medium toasted barriques (Allier French oak). The fi nal stage of ageing lasts for 2 months. The Cabernet Merlot Batista is bottled when it’s 2 months old and is aged for another 8 months.

balanced, reminiscent of cherry jam, with an aftertaste of coffee and chocolate, it has a high content of tannins, acidity and alcohol, fullbodied and a long-lasting aftertaste. When it is still young, it has weighty tannins and is fairly smooth, which will improve with age.

in terms of the Batista we have also striven to present a wine that makes an impression due to its unique and special characteristics. A considerable amount of the work is in fact done in the vineyard, where bunch thinning and the optimal
selection of the bunches is done using the same methods adopted for both wines. Once the maceration has fi nished and after having done two rackings, the wine is transferred into the barriques, where it remains for a variable period.
Only the best barriques are chosen for this superb wine.
