This  wine was  fermented  and  aged  in  centennial  tinajas (amphorae),  a tradition originated in the first vineyards of the Itata Valley planted in 1551. 

The results is a tribute to the first winemakers of the country and to this special terroir. 

This wine is 100% Cinsault and comes from a vineyard located 22 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean and 450 kilometers south of Santiago in the village of Guarilihüe. It is a mountainous zone with granite soils, gentle hills and old dry farmed vineyards. This vineyard was planted in 1982, without rootstock, is gobelet trained and dry farmed, following the tradition of the region. 

The climate is cool coastal with a marked influence from the Pacific Ocean and the grapes are hand picked. The clusters are destemmed and the whole berries are put into amphorae, where they undergo a semi-carbonic-style spontaneous alcoholic fermentation. Later, the free-run and press wine are blended and the wine matures all winter-long in amphorae. In spring, after the malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is bottled. 

This violet-coloured wine has a floral and perfumed nose with notes of violets, fresh red and black fruits and spices. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied with fine, smooth tannins, fresh acidity and abundant fruit, accompanied by a long finish.
