This wine, whilst ready to enjoy now has cellaring potential. If you cellar this wine for up to three or four years, it may require decanting. Good reds will “throw a crust” or form sediments over this time, hence the need to decant it. If you drink it young, then remove the screw cap 30 minutes before you serve it
