Falernia Elki Sangiovese 2015 (1x75cl)

If your knowledge of the vineyards of Chile is limited to Maipo, Rapel and Colchagua, the Elqui Valley might come as a bit of a surprise. This northern enclave of earth tremors and UFO-spotting really does resemble a valley, running east to west and with a growing population of vines drawing on the vital irrigation of the Elqui River (there’s typically less than three inches of rainfall a year in this arid region).

All the grapes are hand-picked, de-stemmed and crushed. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at 26-28ºC. After the fermentation the young wine is kept on the skins for a further 4/5 days. Aging: 50% of the volume in stainless steel and 50% in French and American oak barrels for 3 months.

Vibrant, juicy and supple Sangiovese from Chile's northern Elqui Valley that bursts with English summer red fruits.
