PIATTELLI VINEYARDS TANNAT
A mouth filling, powerful wine with rich blackberry fruits and hints of spice. Concentrated fruit flavours are balanced by a fresh palate with a chalky texture, through to pleasing and moreish finish.
The vines are grown at high altitude in Cafayate, situated at 1,700 metres above sea-level. It is one of the highest regions in the world suitable for viticulture and this high altitude is what defines the terroir. The vines are exposed to intense sunlight which results in the grapes forming thicker and darker skins to protect themselves from the ultraviolet rays; leading to more colour and flavour concentration in the grapes. The diurnal temperature difference results in an extended ripening season, producing flavoursome grapes with balancing acidity. The trellised vines are grown with minimal intervention in alluvial and sandy loam soils.
