Clic Vin advices
In order to create a high-end cuvée of pure Malbec, we wanted to highlight the fruit and the expression of the terroir. Our choice fell on the purchase of a terracotta amphora from the TAVA house: 3rd generation of Italian ceramists worldwide recognized in the manufacture of amphorae. The firing temperature is essential in the manufacturing process and gives the amphora a certain oxygen porosity. Like a barrel, this porosity will act positively on the tannic charge of the wine by giving it a patina.
Amphorae have been used in viticulture as containers since nearly 3000 BC.
