ALIRA

Alira Cabernet Sauvignon

Dry red wine, 13,0% ABV

A Cabernet Sauvignon created on the banks of the Danube, between Aliman and Rasova, following the Bordeaux philosophy that impresses through power and elegance. It is distinguished by the perfect harmony between ripe fruit notes and spices, or even more rustic olfactory sensations of tanned leather. Well-integrated tannins will continue to help it evolve well for years, remaining vigorous.

A safe and delicious association is that between Cabernet Sauvignon and red meat with a higher fat content or pork. The tannins of this variety have the gift of intensifying the sensation of tender meat, potentiating the taste. Black fruit flavors fit perfectly with seasoned sauces, and the light rustic notes complement perfectly simple and savory dishes, such as stews. In order to fully experience the potency of the wine, it can also be associated with sheep pastrami with strong oriental spices.

Wine-making and maturation

Matured in oak barrel for 12 months

Matured in oak barrel for 12 months

The grapes are hand-picked and carefully selected on vibrant tables. We performed a cold pre-maceration of the intact beans at 16 ° C for 5-8 days. The alcoholic fermentation (100% by selected yeast inoculation) controlled at 26-28 ° lasted 8-10 days, then we performed a hot post-maceration for 5-8 days. Maturing was done for 12 months in new French oak barrels.
