The wine

"I don't trust people who don't drink". Supposedly attributed to Humphrey Bogart, this is the saying that Desconfío pays tribute to, a wine carrying 95% of the Mantonegro variety and one which aims to silence the voices of those who have no confidence in this grape's capabilities. A wine which does justice and credit to this local variety and enables enjoyment of all its singularity thanks to a careful vinification that includes ageing for 13 months in new French oak barrels.

Desconfío is a wine with character, featuring its aromas of red fruit jam, scrubland and eucalyptus, to which are added other woody notes, toffee hints and a mineral touch. On the palate it appears flavoursome, aromatic, elegant, fruit-driven and varietal. Very balsamic as it passes through the mouth and having silky tannins which makes it most pleasant on the palate. A lovely wine, with a long and expressive finish.
