Deep ruby red color, with an intriguing perfume, with spicy and sweet final hints, long persistence on the palate. The Ambassador is the result of a careful selection of Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

After the separate alcoholic fermentation of the grapes, in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature settings, and the necessary decanting, the wine is placed in medium-toasted fine-grained French and American oak barriques to preserve the autochthonous hints. The Ambassador is the perfect companion for aromatic dishes.

Vinification process: The alcoholic fermentation takes place in separate temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for approximately 30 days with repeated pumping over. Afterwards, the free run juice is transferred to new French oak barriques where the malolactic fermentation occurs and the refinement process begins.

Barrel aging and refinement: The wine is then transferred into new French and American oak barriques for approximately 18 months. These barriques have been carefully selected for their fine grain wood and moderate toasting, so they do not impose woody flavors to the wine but only enhance the fruit and the indigenous characteristics of the grape varietal itself.

Bottle refinement:: Minimum 6 months before release

Bottles produced:: 2.500

Available vintages: 2008 - 2015

Suggested food accompaniments: Grilled or braised meats, stews, all wild game dishes especially if cooked or stewed with berries. Try it with slightly spicy and well-aged cheeses for dessert, or even with dark chocolate.

Organoleptic notes: Deep ruby-red with strokes of violet in youth. Intense whiffs of prunes, plums, black cherry and wild forest fruits are intricately laced with balsamic, white pepper, oriental spices and licorice notes on the nose. In the mouth the tannins are soft, velvety and well rounded with a persistent finish.
