Vinification

Individual vineyard parcels were fermented separately and pumped over regularly for soft and elegant tannin extraction.

Full of black fruits with minty notes.
Soft and elegant, with a long and tasty finish. A classic wine coming from Pirque at the Andes Region. Great with pasta, risottos and meat dishes.
