Fortulla was created in 2005 and its name comes from a small creek called Fortullino which runs throughout the property.  The Cabernet grapes are picked by hand, and after destemming the berries are hand selected on a moving belt.  The berries are subjected to pre-fermentation cold maceration, to favor the extraction of varietal aromas, color and the subtler and sweeter tannins.

The fermentation and maceration are conducted at controlled temperature and last about two weeks, during which times we perform frequent short pump overs.
After racking off the wine is decanted in concrete tanks, small tronco conic vats, and small oask barrels to age for a period of about 8 months.
The wine has a ruby red, intense, and bright color.  The nose has intense varietal notes, especially green pepper and hay, fruity notes of morello cherry and plum, and spices.
Soft on the palate, this flavorful wine’s elegant tannins give it a pleasant structure and persistent finish.
