WINEMAKER'S NOTES All fruit underwent carbonic maceration, with some grapes treated using appassimento to enhance the blend’s weight. For the first time since 2014, Syrah has been included, along with a touch of Dornfelder to enrich the color profile. The blend primarily con-sists of fruit from our 2023 harvest, except for the Malbec, which is from 2021. Ambient fermentation lasted between 30 days and 5 months. Fer-mentation and aging were conducted in 4000L and 2000L French oak vats, as well as in 2 and 3-year-old French and Moldovan oak barriques. 
SOMMELIER'S NOTES The nose reveals hints of Malbec and Syrah, with dominant blue and black fruit aromas complemented by vanilla, baking spices, and a subtle peppery and herbal note. This Big Red is the most complex to date, featuring a rounder palate and more integrated tannins compared to #8. It’s an easy-drinking yet generous wine, ideal for summer sipping, offering enough complexity to remain engaging over multiple bottles. (May 2024 - JL)
