VINIFICATION

Plaga wines are made under the same parameters of vinification as prestigious vineyards in Australia, Chile and California. The fermentation process occurs under low temperatures using stainless steel tanks, pipes and pumps in order to preserve and extract the highest quality juice from imported grapes. In the stabilisation, clarification and filtration stages we have used only first quality enological products from overseas, assuring the quality of our product. The bottling process has been made in a special Italian bottling line to ensure a perfect seal and the correct evolution of the wine in bottle. Time, dedication and the most modern technology are an essential part of the vinification of each bottle of Plaga Wine.

Palate: A natural slight sweetness empowers the big structure in mouth. All the fruits and species are present in the sip and a quite long after taste.
