This wine is a blend of varieties originating from the Mediterranean Basin– 60% Alicante Nero (aka Grenache), 30% Mourvedre, 8% Carignano, 2% Alicante Bouschet- sourced from vineyards at 200-350 meters above sea level. The fruit was harvested from the 10th to the 25th of Septembe with yields of 60hl/ha..  The varietals were harvested and vinified separately.  A small part of the harvest undergoes carbonic maceration, the rest is either done whole berry or crushed.  Macerations lasted 5-7 days.  Aged 6 months in cement tanks.  60,000 1L bottles produced.

"Crushed flowers, dried cherries, licorice and spice give the 2015 Unlitro much of its lifted, airy personality. This mid-weight blend of Alicante Nero, Carignano and Alicante Bouschet is best enjoyed over the next 2-3 years, as the flavors are already a bit forward."
