Plaga wines are made under the same parameters of viniﬁcation as prestigious vineyards in Australia, Chile and California. The fermentation process occurs under low temperatures using stainless steel tanks, pipes and pumps in order to preserve and extract the highest quality juice from imported grapes. In the stabilization, clariﬁcation and ﬁltration stages we have used only ﬁrst quality enological products from overseas, assuring the quality of our product. The bottling process has been made in a special Italian bottling line to ensure a perfect seal and the correct evolution of the wine in bottle. Time, dedication and the most modern technology are an essential part of the viniﬁcation of each bottle of Plaga Wine.
Plaga Magnum is a European style red wine, with high maturation and a radical concept of aging, to give complexity and follow the evolution to enrich the wine. You can feel a big body and a right freshness in a 18 month wine with very complex aroma and strong palate. Color: Red - Ruby color already with slightly evolution. Aroma: Very complex aromas from the high maturation and aging. Candied plums, smoked oak and balsamic hints are the most relevant, with other touches from American oaks and primary aromas from Nero D’Avola. Palate: A big structure with strong character balances all the Nero D’Avola and Merlot characteristics. Dark plumbs and balsamic notes persist in a long after taste feeling with an appealing baked cake entrance.
