A Los Vinateros Bravos 'Volcanico' Pais 2021
- In stock, ready to ship
Leo Erazo highlights two predominant terroirs in the Itata Valley with the Pais grape as the medium - Vulcanic and Granitic.
“Volcanico’ Pais also comes from a very old and own rooted parcel (over 100 years) grown on basaltic soils. Grapes are hand harvested and fermentation starts spontaneously with native yeasts in concrete vats. Skins are basket pressed and the wine is then aged in large casks made from the local “Rauli” wood for 14 months. Light to medium bodied posture, with ripe and vibrant fruit (cassis/boysenberry), and shows its understated savory side with a smoky, peppery undertone. Tannins are fine but present, and in a way, it’s a wine that plays in the same key as something like Cabernet Franc from Chinon. Bruno Sant'Anna
