Winemaker's Notes:

Tufa soils give this wine its typicity. Half the wine goes through a pre-fermentation maceration (cold soak) for 5 days to refine the tannins and extract superior fruit characteristics. Look for dark, garnet color with an intense nose of red-berry fruits and a whiff of cocoa. Gorgeous! The palate is mouthfilling and deliciously accessible, packed with raspberries and chocolate notes. www.vosselections.com
