This blend of 50% Malbec and 50% Pinot Noir is all manually harvested from a single vineyard in Gualtallary. The wine sees some carbonic maceration and has a huge vibrant nose of red fruit, violets, and caramel apple. Good acid lifts the midpalate with notes of rhubarb, red cherry, orange peel, ash, crushed stone, mushroom, gunpowder, and flint. Freshness and bright acid define this wine.
Aging: 6 months in large concrete vat

"The pale and aromatic red 2022 JI JI JI was produced with low intervention as a co-fermentation of 50/50 Malbec and Pinot Noir with 12.5% alcohol. It has a light to medium-bodied palate and fine tannins, aromatic and floral through a carbonic maceration of the 100% full clusters and bottled unoaked to preserve the fruit and freshness. It's tasty, fresh and refreshing, very pleasant!"
