The 1700 metres above sea level offers cold winters and warm summers with high temperatures during the day and cool nights. During the vegetative season there is a difference of temperature between day and night of around 15ºC. This allows great expression of colour and tannin development. The soil is Sandy loam with limestone channels, it is very permeable with low salt content. The fruit was manually picked between the 8th and the 13th of April. The wine was aged 70% in tank and 30% in French Oak for 8 months. The wine is then allowed to settle for 6 – 8 months prior to release. There is intense violet, red colour. Aromas of plum, cinnamon and chocolate. On the palate it is full flavoured and rich, with good structure and a long finish. – Accuro Wines
