Leonardo Erazo - La Resistencia
La Resistencia reflects the stubborn persistence of Itata’s old vineyards and their vignerons. Against all odds they have survived the test of time. This delicately fresh País, grown out of a 0,5 hectare 170 year old vineyard, orates Itata’s history of honest, organic and respectful viticulture. This Pais is grown on their single site estate vineyard. Tiny quantities produced.
