Vallisto Extremo Tannat

Vallisto Extremo is the pet project of Francisco Lavaque producing classical wines via natural methods from old vines, for this Tannat over a hundred years old. Fermented and aged for twelve months in concrete tanks with no wood used.

Purple opaque in colour with ruby highlights, so no surpirse that it’s big and juicy on entry. Not a “fruit bomb” as some Salta wines can be, more of a European balanced¬†savoury style.
