Tinto de Rulo carry out all work in the vineyard by hand with traditional wooden crates used to collect the grapes. Pipeno uses 70+ year old Pais grapes from granite soils of Yumbel in the Bio Bio Valley. After manual de-stemming, 50% of the juice is fermented in big lagares of old Raulí wood (Chilean oak), and 50% in old clay amphoras. Fermentation is spontaneous with no addition of commercial yeasts. Wine is aged for 4 to 5 month in old Rauli pipas (large barrels).
The resulting wine is an excellent example of this refreshing grape. The nose shows strawberry, raspberry and red plum with some earthy and rustic hints. The palate is filled with plentiful fresh red fruits, delicate tannins and juicy, refreshing acidity. Try with pates, cured sausage platters, steak tartare, mushroom dishes or quiches.
Tinto de Rulo is a small project of three friends who, by pooling resources, create wine together, making just 1200 cases in total. They use tiny plots of Pais and Malbec, ranging from 70 to 200 years in age, spread across Itata and Bio Bio valleys. They also have a little plot of Carignan just over the hills in Maule. Fruit from these pristine organic vineyards is fermented in clay amphorae and very old native Rauli Pipas with only minimal sulphur added at bottling.
