ANGELICA VINEYARD ESSENCE 500 ML

Aging: 48 months in French oak The grapes for this wine, which come from the Angélica vineyard, follow a very particular process. The plants have two arms called "loaders" whose function is to support the clusters. A loader arm is cut and left on the plant to dehydrate naturally. The other arm continues its cycle of natural maturity. Then the grapes from both arms are harvested at the same time, where half are raisins and the other half are ripe grapes. In this way, a lot of complexity, concentration and freshness are obtained at the same time. The resulting wine, which has a high alcohol content and residual sugar, is reminiscent of Italian amarone or port wines.
Tasting Notes: With an intense and voluptuous nose, notes of dried plums, licorice, figs stand out, with hints of chocolate, cinnamon and pepper. In the mouth it is dense and silky, although vibrant due to its refreshing acidity. In the mouth, the fruity notes are repeated, with the addition of caramel notes that remain for a long time, in a long and balanced finish.
