On the nose, spicy aromas stand out, such as roasted red bell pepper, black pepper and strawberries in syrup. Soft floral notes, reminiscent of violets appear. By the end of the bouquet, subtle notes of bitter chocolate, dried tobacco leaves and dry earth can be appreciated. In mouth, soft and silky tannins are displayed, with great vitality and textures, a common characteristic of the wines of the valley. With its beautiful acidity and full body, this wine lets us foresee great aging potential.
Vineyards with colluvial soils
The 2017 vintage gave sophisticated wines with a beautiful balance of fruit concentration, structure and depth mainly due to the season’s particularly low yields. Notably healthy conditions in the vines and bright acidity helped to preserve the fresh fruit style of Caliterra's winemaking, allowing for remarkable concentration and structure and lively fruit flavours.
