The 4,000-foot elevation ensures that, with the right handling, the grapes for these wines lend an Old World elegance so prized by wine lovers.

Tasting Notes: Deep Violet color. On the nose, ground-mushrooms and red berries aromas. Notes of violet prune and spices. Medium body with soft and silky tannins and a flavorful finish.
Cinnamon and vanilla lead to plum and blackberry on the nose of this wine. Firm tannins and vibrant acidity are a stamp of the Gualtallary region where this wine is made. The palate displays intense black-fruit flavors and hints of spices, due to a smart use of oak. It has a flavorful finish.
