Tasting notes

Black fruit and grainy spices contrast intriguing savoury notes of serious depth and complexity. Liquorice, cloves, graphite and a whiff of white pepper confirm the boldness of this wine. The elegant earth-bound fragrance offers an exciting mix of wild herbs, dried mountain grass and truffle. A touch of wild game meat and leather add further interesting layers to this wine which impresses with its complexity and dry, savoury style rather than by its power. The freshness and finely structured core of fruit reflect the uniqueness of this cool climate, high-altitude Gualtallary vineyard. Drinks perfectly at the time of release yet will gain further bottle age complexity if cellared properly.

Producer

TRAPICHE

Vinification and aging

The fruit is fermented in 100 hl concrete vats with native yeast typical of this vineyard. Then, classic maceration is conducted through daily delestage and pumping over during four weeks, after which a pneumatic pressing is applied. Afterwards, racking and malolactic fermentation take place. Aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. Ageing potential of 15 years. With the passing of time, it is possible to find little natural sediments that will not affect this wine’s features.

Terroir

The soils of this amazing micro-terroir present a first sandy layer with a depth of 60 cm below the surface, which lies on a second layer of rounded clast with significant contents of calcium carbonate.
