Vinification
The grapes were harvested manually and the first selection happened directly in the field. Only the grapes suitable for our quality criteria were harvested. These were delicately transported in 15 kg boxes to our cellar where a strict sorting happened before processing them. Only the bunches that really proved to be perfect were sent by gravity to the old cement vats (1962), where alcoholic fermentation occurred naturally and without any addition of chemicals and / or yeasts. Then, part of the wine was transferred to age in in French oak barrels for 20 months. The remaining wine, after being cleaned from the bunches, aged in the same cement vat. During this stage, malolactic fermentation took place. 24 months later, a blend from a strict selection of each barrel was assembled for the Definido Red.
Ripening
Part in Barrel of "Puligny Montrachet" from Burgundy and the remaining in old cement vats (1962)


A region destined to produce great wine, an exceptional vintage and the talent of a passionate winemaker; the combination makes for an impressive red wine.

As the first edition, Definido Red 2018 has a fine and elegant wine as a result of the intention to create a fine wine with a typical extraction from the Da?o region. Shows a bright ruby color. The aroma is deep, complex and austere. The mineral profile, with floral notes, cocoa and fruits of the forest, is in full harmony with the notes of the barrel. In the glass, over time, the wine will show several layers, in a very elegant register, but with tension, reflecting the freshness and minerality of the old vines. With a silky texture and firm structure, it presents highly polished tannins. Although young, impresses with balance and precision. Very fine, long and seductive finish. It will age with great class.
