Produced by the prestigious Bodegas Julián Chivite, Chivite Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Syrah is a single varietal, single estate Spanish red wine.
The Syrah grapes of the Finca de Villatuerta estate were manually harvested at dusk, carefully selected, destemmed, and gently crushed. After a brief maceration, they were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Transferred into new French oak barrels from Allier, this red wine from Navarra was then aged for 12 months.
