Colour, aroma and taste: 

the profound ruby hue excites the eye before the nose is delighted by the wonderfully structured bouquet of ripe blackberry, blueberry, dry fruit and figs, with gentle smoky and charred notes rising in the background, like fine spices contributed by the wood. On the palate it pampers with softness, fullness and sweet tannins, rounded out by a coffee and chocolate finish. A perfect amount of ripe acidity contributes some inviting freshness and announces a long, long life to come.

The sommelier recommends

Food pairing: First, some solid advice: luxurious as well as long-aged reds simply love decanting. With this procedure, meaning the pouring of wine from the bottle into a decanter, two things are accomplished: first, clear wine is separated from any potential sediment forming at the bottom of the bottle, a normal and expected phenomenon that doesn't affect the quality of the wine; and second, the wine is aired, washed over with oxygen so it can breathe, having been trapped in the bottle for so long, opening up so that the aromas release and expand which might take up to half an hour. Such wines deserve patience and a dish to fit their stature: juicy beefsteak, crunchy roast melting in the mouth, venison in various sauces or aged cheese come to mind.

Production method

“Great red wines” or grands vins as we call them require wood. With years of aging, the tannins are reshaped, becoming soft, sweetish and velvety as the wine acquires tertiary aromas. The Prestige line also rests in one-third new barriques and two-thirds used ones, so that the wood's impressions aren't too overpowering.

 

Grapes

Blaufränkisch is a dark-skinned variety of grape used for red wine.  Blaufränkisch, which is a late-ripening variety, produces red wines which are typically rich in tannin and may exhibit a pronounced spicy character.

The grape is grown across Central Europe, including Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia (known as modra frankinja), and Italy (Franconia). It has been called "the Pinot Noir of the East" because of its spread and reputation in Eastern Europe.
