The climate is dry, with long summers and little rainfall. In the highlands the winds clean the air, the vegetation is in excellent health, the soils are poor and stony and the snowmelt-water from the mountains purifies it all.
The extreme altitude confers unique characteristics to the vines:
At high altitude, there is more and better solar radiation and diurnal range, which makes the days warm, ideal for providing phenolic ripeness, and the nights cool, which benefits the acidity retention.
Also, to protect itself from the intense sunlight and the drastic temperature variation, the berry generates a thicker skin that enhances the presence of polyphenols and aromas in the wine
As a result, we achieve an authentic extreme altitude wine: intense, concentrated and very well structured, characterized by its deep colour and great aromatic potential, characteristics that will be balanced by a remarkable acidity, which provides freshness and ageing potential.
