Vina Ventisquero Vertice Carmenere Syrah 2012
Winemaking: The grapes first underwent a low-temperature pre-fermentative maceration to bring out the maximum colour and aromas. Then the must was fermented in small stainless steel tanks and open tanks. The management of the tannins in this wine is very important.
Maturation : The wine was aged for 20 months in ultra-fine grain French oak barrels, 40% of them new and the rest second and third use.
Ageing potential: This wine can be enjoyed now, but it has the potential to be aged for at least 8
to 10 years.
Colour: Deep red with violet hues.
Aromas: The nose reveals black fruit, such as blackberries, intermingled with gentle spices, such as
black pepper, damp earth, notes of native forest and a hint of graphite.
Palate: This wine has a firm structure and silky tannins. Its black fruit and spicy flavours, together
with medium to high acidity lend it balance in the mouth and persistence in the finish.
