Vinification Process
The Carménere grapes were harvested by hand at first of May while the Cabernet sauvignon grapes were harvested a few days before. In order to extract color and aromas the must underwent skin contact at low temperatu- res prior to alcoholic fermentation during five days. The must is then fermen- ted in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging between 26° to 28°C during a ten days period.. The wine is then left to macerate for twenty additional days in order to extract tannin and then placed in oak barrels eighteen month, 80% French oak and 20% American oak. At the end the wine is bottle without filtering to maintain its extraordi- nary qualities.

Deep purple red. Aromatic intensity of pepper, black berries, hazelnut and notes of coffee. Well balanced and great structure, with condensed and mature tannins, followed by a pleasant and smoky aftertaste. Pairs well with roast beef, pork, pasta and fresh cheese.
