About this winery

Since the time it was founded, the wine cellar has pursued a path strongly marked by its philosophy and its vision of wine. Its Italian roots, given by Robert Cipresso himself, have been a pivotal contribution as an ideological foundation, which has been strengthened by team thinking, experience and oenological results. Today, the cellar leaves an unmistakable seal on each one of its wines; this is a result of years of coherence, obsession and respect for nature.

Tasting notes

Ruby red in color with intense aromas of plum and tobacco on the nose and palate. This big, old world wine offers refined, dusty tannins, a truffled note and bright, peppery acidity that carries red fruit flavors through to a subtle and persistent finish. Low yields, careful vineyard management and low intervention winemaking are the hallmark of this and all other Achaval-Ferrer wines.

Viticultural notes

Highly sustainable. No pesticides in most of our vineyards.

Winemaking notes

Aerated pump-overs with soft sprinkling of the cap, followed by pressing at the end of and up to 4 days after fermentation as determined by daily tasting results. No filtering. Cold soaks, acid correction, bleed-offs and addition of enzymes were not used during vinification. Fermented in cement tanks at a maximum temperature up to 93-95° F with extensive pumping over for better extraction. Malolactic: 100% spontaneous in oak.
