Altolandon - CF (Cabernet Franc) 2019


100% Cabernet Franc, a low-yield variety, resistant to rot & insect attack, perfect for aging wines. It provides structure, evolutionary potential & great elegance as well as fruit & floral aromas.

Grapes arrive at the winery with total respect for the fruit, without breakage & without exposing them to the sun or high temperatures immediately after being harvested from the vineyards surrounding the winery. Selection of bunches is carried out & only healthy & ripe fruit enters the fermentation tanks.

Cold maceration for 2 weeks, followed by a spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in 6000 liter stainless steel tank (no commercial yeasts were used.) Gently presses & aged for 12 months in new 300 liter French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place naturally & spontaneously. Stabilization is also natural, the wine is in deposits during the coldest months, temperatures can go to minus 15º C.
