The perfect partner for mushroom-parmesan risotto.The Casablanca Valley is influenced by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean and its coastal breezes that moderate temperatures. The area ranges from soft rolling hills to higher hills toward the Coastal Mountain range in the east. The poor, sandy loam soils are alluvial in origin, relatively shallow and very permeable, resulting in yields which are generally low in comparison with other Chilean valleys. Temperatures are much cooler here, allowing the grapes to ripen very slowly to produce rich flavoured wines. The Casablanca Valley is influenced by the Pacific Ocean and the Humboldt Current, resulting in constant humidity and average temperatures of 25ºC in the summer and 14ºC in the winter. The spring of 2015 was cooler than average and the relative humidity was higher. This caused uneven budbreak and later ripening. An increase in rainfall forced an earlier harvest in April. The grapes are harvested into 400-kg bins and transported to the winery, where first the clusters and then the grapes (after destemming) are selected on a conveyor belt. Once in the tank, they undergo a pre-fermentation maceration for 3 days, followed naturally by alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts. During this stage, temperatures are kept at 24-26º C, with a gentle pump-over routine. A 2-3-day post-fermentation maceration is then carried out. Malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously in stainless steel tanks and barrels. The wine is filtered through 1-micron membranes and then bottled. 70% of the wine is aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.This wine is Organic.

An elegant bouquet
which recalls notes of red fruit and berries, the palate is characterized by
fruity undertones (blackberry, raspberry and cherry) with a balanced finish of
slight tannins, acidity and spices. Enjoy with roasted duck, or rich creamy
pastas with truffle.The vines are grown in the hills
of Pavia, 130 metres above sea level. The grapes are harvested in the final 10
days of September and taken immediately to the vinification cellar, where the
de-stemming and crushing is performed. The transfer of the crushed grapes into
conical trunk vats in oak wood is not temperate controlled. The wine is then
drawn off, separated from the marc, and transferred to oak barrels at a
controlled temperature where the malolactic fermentation takes place. Here the
vinification is slow and uses the techniques of delestage and batonage. The
wine is decanted into steel tanks and the topping is carried out until it is
left to mature and stabilize for about 4 months. The wine is then transferred
to the bottling cellar where it is clarified and filtered and introduced into
the bottling line. The bottles are then left to mature for a few months.
