Carigno del Maule borns in the interior dry land of Maule, Cauquenes, Chile. Coming from 70 year old vineyards on average growing in dry farm bush vines system, this vineyard, property of Guzman Family, is settled on a granite soil with a high presence of quartz, located 35 kilometers away from the coast. This terroir represents the expression of this variety in its splendor. The grapes were harvested the second week of March where it reached its optimum phenolic maturity. 

This wine was vinified in stain steel tank. The grape is destemmed and selected, part of the grape is slightly cracked to subtly release its juice. It begins with a cold maceration of 3 days. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out with wild yeast, we made soft pump overs to homogenize the contents of the tank. Temperatures are controlled so it reach not more than 24 25 °°. Once the alcoholic fermentation is done, skins, seeds and wine are kept an extra 8 days. The free run and pressing wine were blend. The ageing was made in fifth use French oak barrels (225L capacity) for 20 months.
