Here is the reflection of the delicacy, rusticity, simplicity, and honesty of Pinot Noir. It was discovered when no one believed in it, but Despechado was strong and shone in its own right. The grapes were macerated without being crushed and then fermented in concrete eggs with wild yeasts and then aged in old clay amphorae. The result is a wine that found the love it was looking for.
WHAT’S BEHIND THE NAME?
Despechado means scorned—a very fitting name considering that this wine is made with grapes that some once overlooked for their small yield. Now that they have been turned into wine, however, many want them back again.
