CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PARCELS SELECTED FOR LA VIOLETA
Our thorough knowledge of our finca has enabled us to select the parcels that best express the elegance, concentration and typicity of Malbec, namely parcels 5 and 9, to produce a Violeta.
Marcelo Pelleriti walks the vineyard, tastes the grapes, and decides when to harvest. Grapes are picked manually into small, 12 kg plastic bins.
After being manually picked from the clusters, the berries are placed in French oak barrels for cold soaking at 8 °C for 20 days. Then, fermentation follows, with barrel rotation and manual pigeage performed on a daily basis throughout the process.
24 – 36 months in new French oak barrels, followed by 5 years in bottles.
Between 14 – 16°C
