The nose is intense and complex, packed with cassis, raspberry and floral scents of violets, that are characteristic of the “Adrianna” Vineyard. Oak aging adds subtle vanilla, tobacco and liqueur notes.
On the palate, a sweet entry leads to an ample, complex wine, with soft, round tannins that linger throughout the finish.
Adrianna vineyard: aluvial origin. Gravel and limestone. Rounded rocks in the bottom.
Dry Farming, Cool Climate and Eternal Snow. The coolest vintage in the last thirty years, 2016 was marked by "El Niño", low yields and a fully snow-covered view of the Andes through the summer. The rains came together with cooler than usual days which saved us from any rot by lowering yields and shortening the harvest season. Our vineyards were mostly dry farmed; natural acidities are extremely high and alcohols low, in the 12-13 range. The 2016 wines might take longer than usual to be ready for drinking.
