Calcu Reserva Especial Carmenère

2016 CLIMATE The season of 2016 was colder than usual and the ripening process was, therefore, delayed by several days. As a result, the wines show moderate levels of alcohol but, at the same time, an excellent natural balance between fruit expression and volume. WINEMAKING • 100% hand picking and sorting of clusters and grapes. • Fermentation temperatures between 22-25°C in stainless steel tanks. • Total maceration time of 20 days (including alcoholic fermentation and warm soak). • Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. • The wine aged for 8 months in second and third use French oak barrels. AWARDS • 90 Points Descorchados, 2019. TASTING NOTE “Deep, bright red colour. On the palate it reveals very intense red fruit flavours with a nice body and long finish. On the nose it shows floral and black fruit aromas. This is a very elegant wine with a soft tannic structure”. Rodrigo Romero, Winemaker.
