El Salvaje shows Pinot Noir in its most natural form. We look for fruity expressiveness of the variety, accompanied by a creamy sensation and good structure in the mouth. It has smoky notes, coming from the prolonged maceration and at the time of harvest. The organic certification is born by conviction, to demonstrate that the natural expression of the vineyard can be maintained and moved from the grape to the glass.
