WINEMAKING Le uve sono messe in vasche di cemento rotonde, al fine di massimizzare il contatto con le bucce. Sono lasciate qui a macerare a freddo (perchè il cemento conserva le temperature naturalmente) per un periodo di circa 3 giorni. Successivamente avviene il rimontaggio con tecnologie moderne per una o due volte al giorno per estrarre dalla buccia il colore e i tannini. Una volta che la fermentazione alcolica è finita, il vino viene travasato per gravità in botti francesi di altissima qualità. Il rapporto è di circa il 25% legno nuovo e il 75% di 1 anno. Qui avviene la fermentazione malolattica che dura circa 1 mese.

Name: Bodega Chacra
Start-up year: 1932
Winemaker name: Hans Vinding-Diers
Address: Rio Negro - Patagonia (Argentina)

Bodega Chacra is situated in northern Patagonia, the same distance from the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The region has a dry and arid climate and is sheltered by the natural barrier created by the surrounding desert. The air is crystal clear, without pollution, and the sun shines with dazzling intensity. The climate in the region is very consistent, each season marked precisely, which means that vintages can be relied on for their consistent quality. Piero Incisa della Rocchetta first purchased the land for Bodega Chacra in 2004, and subsequently added to it over the years. He comes from a family of winemakers well known in the region. The vineyard, which was abandoned when he first purchased it, has thick, pure, gnarled Pinot Noir vines, planted over seventy years ago. The vines produce tiny bunches of small, concentrated berries which are harvested by hand. When fermentation is complete, the wine is transferred into barriques by gravity, without pressing or filtering. Bottling is done without fining or filtration. The idea is for the oak, the fruit and the nuances of the soil to blend perfectly so that the terroir is expressed to its fullest.
