Fresh wine. Notes of ripe red and dark cherry and slightly earthy undertones. While it enters the market a year after all other wines of it's season, Gran Cerdo is actually the winemakers youngest creation. Why make it available a year after it's peers are already on the shelves? Because they can't bear to part with it. In all actuality, it's because Gran Cerdo requires a year of storage in an underground cement storage tank to make the lactic bacteria come alive and initiate the malolactic fermentation process. That technique is borrowed from the winemakers of Porto, Portugal.
