Type: Red Wine
Fruit is hand harvested. Vinified with a short, whole-cluster maceration, this wine fermented in chestnut barrels, where the wine was allowed to develop a veil of flor yeast, and mature in two used barrels and barriques.
The plot that produces this Rapolao delivers a more fragile wine, and this wine is the longer and more austere of the Rapolao bottlings. It is cleaner and longer, young and juicy. The wine is fresh, aromatic, with flavors of red fruit, black licorice, cocoa, mountain herbs and light notes of mandarin peel.
