  • Y ademas viene con garantia para curar penas y mal de amores

The Vineyards:

  • Too many to mention

Winemaking:

  • Any barrel that does not ´fit´ into one of our parcel wines get´s put aside for potential inclusion in Perverso

All barrels were 

  • Naturally fermented with native yeasts
  • Caps punched down by hand.
  • Yeasts native
  • No temp control (besides opening closing windows) open tank, no nada
  • Pinch of sulfites after malolactic that finished before winter began.
  • Aged in barrels over 3-4 winters until the barrels tame down— no new wood.

Tasting note :

An evolved, complex nose, mixing ripe fruit with pungent spices and a touch of leather, raw meat and licorice, with polished, dusty tannins and good freshness.
