Parcela is a name that reflects the fact that these wines are made from a single plot of land within the vineyards. This boutique winery has studied their soils for years and tested the difference in the wines, depending on which typo of soil they come from. Changes can happen within a few metres. These wines are the most terroir specific anyone can get, and the result is in the taste!

Purple red wine with violet hues; bright and clear, with aromas reminiscent
of fresh red fruit and very elegant subtle smoked feels with a certain floral
touch. It is soft and agile in the palate; it has great body and structure, with
tannins and balanced acidity. Its high fluidity, clear fresh fruit and tension is
clearly expressed in the mouth. Mildly toasted persistent finish.

 

ENJOY!
