Product notes

Elevation: 1000 meters above sea level. Soil: Silt loam of alluvial origin, with gravel in the subsoil and calcareous deposits.

Winemaking notes

Harvest: Hand picking into small, 12 kg plastic bins. Double sorting of clusters and berries to achieve the highest quality. Cold soaking at 7 °C for five days, followed by alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels.

Tasting notes

A deep purple-red. Its aroma is reminiscent of red and dark fruit, and of spices as well. It is fruity and complex on the palate, with round tannins. Persistent finish. An elegant and complex wine.
