Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Candio is the ripest of the single-vineyard Listán Negros, sourced from a plot of 100-year-old vines. The grapes fermented in concrete vats with 50% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in used 500-liter oak barrels for 11 months. This is similar in everything to La Solana, but despite being matured in smaller-size barrels, the wine felt more closed and austere. It's a serious and pretty tannic, mineral/volcanic wine with a dry, austere finish. 4,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2018.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts in French oak open barrels with stalks. Malolactic fermentation and ageing for 16 months in new French oak barrels.
