StyleRipe & Juicy
The fruit comes from San Bernardo, in the Maipo Valley, where the soils are alluvial and the climate dry. Its production is regulated by selecting and thinning out the fruit, to obtain just one bottle per plant.
Harvesting is carried out manually, as is the selection of clusters and individual grapes. Prior to fermentation the must is subjected to cold maceration. A classic Bordeaux-style fermentation is carried out, followed by long post-fermentative macerations, in order to achieve a fruity, elegant wine. The wine is then aged for 14 months in “Tuns” made of French oak.
Deep dark red with shades of ruby. The aroma is reminiscent of fresh herbs, black pepper and red fruits such as raspberry
and cherry. Medium to full bodied with smooth ripe tannins and a long complex finish.
