A LOS VINATEROS BRAVOS

The old Itata Hills is a fantastic place; the potential of the terroir for making wines here with special character is great. The way we work is to bring that sense of place into the bottle. In the Itata Hills the beautiful heritage, the historic old vineyards over volcanic or over granitic soils have a lot to say and tell, we want to communicate that message. In order to achieve that, we are working back into the organic viticulture (historically, a tradition here) with natural winemaking. We feel like we don't need to fix nature but rather enhance its capabilities, thus to enhance its potential. We want wines full of life, vibrancy, and taste.

The delicate underbrush aromas of Itatas wild grass, red fruits and a little bit of cassis are aromas and flavours that characterize this wine. A fresh wine, delicate red fruits aromas (cherry, pomegranate), dry grass, and violet notes. The wine is marked by fine grain tannins and a distinctive mineral character that give a very unique structure and create a long lingering finish with a distinctive mineral character due to the volcanic soils where the old vines thrive.
