"This pinot seems simple at first, with scents of strawberries and fresh flowers that flood the mouth, tasting of red fruits freshly crushed. Then earthy and spicy notes turn the wine toward greater complexity, while the firm tension of the structure surrounds all the juicy flavor." (02/13)
89 Pts Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2012 Pinot Noir is cropped from a single vineyard planted at 1,300 meters atypically east to west, 80% crushed and 20% whole cluster (i.e. carbonic fermentation.) After cold maceration for four days, it undergoes pigeage thrice daily and treated with sulphites at 30ppm and bottled. It has a deep purple/crimson color. The nose is tightly wound with blackberry and bilberry aromas â an underlying minerality palpable. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, slightly chalky tannins. There is a tightly wound core of blackberry and raspberry leaf, while the finish is brittle and defined. This is a lively, vivacious Pinot Noir. Drink now-2016." (10/12)
"Colour: good intensity for the variety, with violety tones. Aroma: Here we find a Pinot Noir that is very intense in the nose, a result of our terroir: aromas of blackberries, strawberries and earth, with mineral notes. Flavour: direct, clear, vertical. It flows in the mouth with plenty of life and smoothness. It has good volume and great acidity, making it very fresh, and a long, sweet finish." - Winery
"The grapes are placed in cement tanks, with 80% crushed and the other 20% as whole clusters. The container
is filled by gravity, in other words, there is no pumping at any time, which means that the grapes reach their
fermentation site practically intact. A cold maceration lasting about 4 days is carried out, and then Alcoholic
Fermentation begins with indigenous or autochthanous yeasts. During this fermentation, the skins are tamped
(pillage) 3 times a day. Malolactic fermentation is carried out and then the wine is treated with sulphites at
30 ppm., filtered through plates, and finally bottled." - Winery
"The vineyard for this variety is located at 1,300 metres above sea-level in Gualtallary, Tupungato. It is a young
vineyard planted on chalky soils, with a very pronounced slope. This helps the grapes to be healthier because there
is no accumulation of water or frost. It has a mountain climate, which implies a great variation in temperature,
and the resulting grapes have thicker skins." - Winery
