Wine specs Notes

COMPOSITION 80% Malbec and 20% Cabernet Franc.

VINTAGE CARACTERISTICS The 2010 winter was cold and dry, as is typical in Mendoza. During spring, there was a slight phenologic delay. The 2011 vintage resulted in wines of great aromatic intensity, especially fresh, with good acidity and great ageing potential.

VINEYARD LOCATION La Consulta, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. Argentina.

ELEVATION 1.000 masl

PRUNING Doble Guyot

SOIL Sandy loam of alluvial origin, with calcareous deposits and a high percentage of stone (70% – 80%).

HARVESTING Manual (12 kg plastic bins)

MICROVINIFICATION Every bunch of Malbec and Cabernet Franc is destemmed by hand. Then, both varietals are fermented together (co-fermentation) in French oak barrels. This is followed by cold soaking at 8 °C for 20 days, which makes it possible to gently obtain more aromatic components, since at this point alcohol does not take part in the solubilization of substances. Barrel rotation and pigeage are carried out by hand on a daily basis.

Throughout the process, Marcello Pelleriti and his team apply their experience and intuition to define the tasks necessary to make this exclusive and limited edition.

AGEING 24 months in French oak barrels and 5 years in bottles.

TASTING NOTES Bright, purplish ruby red in color. Excellent complexity on the nose, with notes of berries and dark fruit, such as plums, floral notes of violet, and subtle, spicy aromas. Great concentration on the palate, with round, firm tannins. A wine with great potential, elegant and complex.

AGEING POTENTIAL Over 20 years. production 2,100 bottles.

SUGGESTED SERVING TEMPERATURE  Between 15 –16 °C.
