The whole bunch grapes were direct-pneumatic pressed. Then wine was cold clarified and fermented with very low temperatures to retain floral and fruit characters for 13 days. All the wines (grapes) were processed separately.
The final base wine was blended (assemblage), cold stabilization, filtration and yeast inoculation for second fermentation. Prise de mousse on the bottle (traditional/classic method). After second fermentation, a few months of sur lattes time before manual disgorging.
In small lots in order to have more sur lattes time by the end. Manual operated, bottle by bottle.
From the same vineyard that produced the grapes for Pizzato Merlot 1999 (the wine that raised Merlot to an outstanding position in the Brazilian red winemaking industry), PIZZATO presents this very exclusive Merlot, made only in vintages with excellent growing conditions. The old vineyard low yield and good extraction winemaking result in a wine with very good ageing potential.
Concentus, from Latin, means harmony, concert, agreement. This wine embodies the enological art of mixing different varietals (grapes, wines) with the purpose of producing higher-class wines. It is a blend of Merlot, Tannat and Cabernet Sauvignon, all grown within the Vale dos Vinhedos and used in different percentages in each harvest.
