description

The Via Argentum from Finca Volvoreta is a small project designed to show the most fruit forward and bright expression of the intense Tinta de Toro grape. The vines are all hand harvested and the grapes are gently brought to the cellar for natural fermentation via carbonic maceration. The process begins in stainless steel vats but then is quickly moved to 720-liter clay amphora as well as old French barrique, both of which are kept in the family’s 400 year old, underground cellar.  After several months of aging, the wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered with a bit of sulfur dioxide for the preservation of the fresh quality that set in while it aged.  The result is full of dark black berry fruits, marmalade, violets, and minerals that unwind with hints of spice and citrus.  The texture is lively and fresh, while remaining deep and fairly tannic due to the nature of the grape.  Meant to be consumed within the first ten years of its life, versus needing ten years of aging to soften a bit.
