Graffigna Cabernet Sauvignon Centenario 2010
WINEMAKING To ensure optimal quality of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, all the grapes were picked by hand and harvesting was done in the early hours of the morning, when the temperature is cool. The grapes were then carried from the vineyards in small crates where they remained until they reached the press, in order to avoid crushing. After harvest, the Cabernet grapes were macerated in their skins at cold, controlled temperatures for a period of 20 days, allowing the juice to obtain the deep color and intense fresh fruit aromas that is our Cabernet trademark. Following fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks, maceration continued for another 7 days, obtaining even more aromas and structure. The wine was then aged in oak barrels (85% French Oak and 15% American Oak) for an additional 12 months where it gained complexity and elegance. Three additional months of ageing in the bottle allowed it to achieve its characteristic balance. The result is an elegant, yet powerful wine.
