A single vineyard wine elegant and complex, displaying ripe black fruits, cayenne pepper, dried violet, and gunpowder notes.

Fermentation is carried out in open containers for 24 days, with 50% whole cluster. The grapes are gently stepped on, so that a part of the skins remain whole in the fermentation, which is carried out spontaneously with wild yeast. The maceration was carried out for 24 days, in which the work consisted of sinking daily the cap manually, without breaking it. After the bleeding and pressing is done, we let it settle for 7 days. After this, it is put into two 500 liter barrels and left to stand for 1 year.
