2018 CREMISI NERO (CARMENERE)

 

Vintage

2018 vintage  has been described by experts as a vintage of finesse. A rainy Winter gave way to moderate temperatures in Spring and Summer creating exceptional conditions for reds and whites. Grapes were handpicked and shipped to us immediately under strict temperature-controlled containers. Overall, the grapes were elegantly balanced, incredibly exuberant, and intensely aromatic. 

 

Winemaking

Different techniques were utilized to boost the natural elegance of this variety Extended cold and warm maceration, controlled temperature fermentation and delestage, helped to develop a robust body, wired with powdery tannins and long-lasting palate. Savory and red fruit aromas open the nose for peppery notes. The wine stretched its muscles for over 18 months in neutral French and American oak until finally was racked and prepared for bottling.

 

Tasting Notes
