Tinto de Rulo, Pipeño Valle del Bío-Bío

Write a Review



Tinto de Rulo is a winemaking project that brings three friends together to attempt to support the local agricultural economy of south-central Chile. Using only organic grapes from vineyards at least 70 years old, they make wines in the old, traditional style: big neutral vessels made from the native Rauli beech, hand-pressing, and spontaneous fermentation. This is a wonderful, simple, rustic, light wine, with nice notes of wild strawberries and raspberries mixing with a nice undercurrent of forest floor earthiness. Light, delicate, and fresh, this wine should be drunk with a slight chill.
