Alira Tribun 2011
ALIRA Tribun is a well-balanced, highly drinkable blend comprising the best varieties of grapes from Aliman and Rasova: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Feteasca Neagra.
This elegant blended wine is both velvety and smooth. It exudes intense forest fruits, sour cherries and a dark chocolate nose with background aromas of French vanilla.
The grapes are hand-picked, then carefully selected on sorting tables. Cold maceration of whole berries is performed from 5 to 8 days at 16 C grades. Alcohol fermentation (100% with addition of selected yeast strains) is controlled at 26-28 C grades during 8-10 days, followed by maceration from 5 to 8 days in thermoregulated tanks.
Part of the wine is aged for about 3 months in French oak. The rest is kept in stainless steel tanks for preserving the soft tannins from ripe seeds, the freshness and fruitness of wine.
