Harvest Note
To be remembered as a great vintage, the phenological phases of the vine has grown in balance and supported by optimal meteorological indices. Spring was warm and balanced and followed by a long but never too stressful summer for the plants. These conditions prepared the optimal final stage of maturation, also relying on light rains in late August that completed an outstanding balance. It is thanks to the vegetative state of the vineyards that the grapes were able to fully express the potential of the territory.
Tasting Note
Mahâris offers a ruby red color with purple highlights. On the nose balsamic notes mix with cocoa and coffee. In the mouth, balsamic notes return from the bouquet, with soft tannins that envelop the palate. The finish exhibits spicy, smoky notes that make this wine both pleasant and unforgettable
Food Pairing
Pairs well with fine meats, game and braised red meats.
