We tasted: Maximus
The Maximus wine is produced with grapes from its own vineyards and selected seedlings in the Campos de Cima da Serra at an altitude of 850 meters in Campestre da Serra, Rio Grande do Sul. It has been traditionally elaborated with daily reruns and temperature control. Aged in American and French oak wood.
This wine has an intense ruby red color, with subtle yellow reflections evolved, result of a great thermal amplitude, favored by the terroir of the region of the fields from the top of the mountain range. The smell has an evolved aroma, intense and fresh, with notes of spices and touches of chocolate, coffee, tobacco and leather. In the mouth it is voluminous, dense, soft sweet and with pleasant and prolonged retro taste.
For the food pairing is ideal with red meat, game and pasta.
