ELABORATION

Gneis 2010 is produced from grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Red Grenache, harvested and selected by hand at the optimum moment of maturity.  For vinification, at a controlled temperature of 24 to 26 degrees, the classic  techniques (prolonged maceration, “racking and return”, pumping over … )  are employed to produce   the perfect combination of polyphenols and polysaccharides, that in addition to the aromas are the elements that give the wine its complex structure.
Aged for 14 months in barrels of lightly toasted French Allier oak, with a maximum of four vintages per barrel.

COMMENTS
Vineyard planting: Cabernet Sauvignon(year 1990) and  Red Grenache (year 1961)
 
Vineyard production:   25 hl/ha

Bottle production : Production limited to  1.900 bottles of 75cl. and 100 magnums of 150 cl.

 

The name GNEIS indicates that the grapes from which this wine is produced are fed by ground that is eminently granite, a composition similar to the gneis (rock that is fundamentally quartz,  feldspar and mica).

TASTING NOTES

Very intense cherry color. Aromas that evoke memories of compotes (very ripe fruits, not pacified), concentrated, intense notes of toast and mineral.  In the mouth it is very meaty, with dry tannins of new wood, and of ripe fruit and plum compote.  Original character and very mediterranean.  Very elegant, with great potential for aging in the bottle.

ALCOHOL

14,5% vol.
