Ca l’Elsa 2014
Red wine obtained from sustainable viticulture and cultivated on volcanic soil of basaltic rock. It is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc varieties.
High-depth intense red wine with shiny ruby edges. Intense aroma of black fruit, blackberry, cherry, fresh jam, with liquorice hints with balsamic background.
On the palate it appears full, meaty, with volume; its present and sweet tannins make it pleasant through the mouth and with a long and persistent finish.
Grapes are hand-harvested and deposited in 15 kg crates to maintain their integrity. Barrelling is done by gravity and, after a pre-fermentative maceration between 24-48 hours at low temperature, the must will ferment at a controlled temperature of 24-26ºC.
During fermentation, daily over-pumpings are carried out and the total fermentation time is 22-25 days. The wine, obtained by saignée, ages in French oak casks for 24 months. Finally, the wine remains in the bottle for about 12 months before being sold.
