Pencopolitano blends grapes and places: Cinsault and Pais (Mission) from Itata and Cauquenes. It matured in concrete and stainless steel vats. The nose is an intoxicating mixture of wild flowers, aromatic herbs and spices, with bright red fruit, hints of cassis and pollen, with quite a lot of complexity.

The 2018 Pencopolitano is a regional red blend of 67% Cinsault from Guarilihue and 33% País from Portezuelo from old vines (40 to 200 years old) on granite-based soils rich in lime, sand and quartz. It fermented with 30% full clusters and matured in 2,500-liter oak foudres, 5,000-liter oak vats and 3,000-liter concrete vats for 10 to 11 months. This is a wine with more structure and fruit, a round palate and a straightforward personality that is easier to understand. 14,698 bottles were filled in March 2019.
