GUALTALLARY… A UNIQUE PLACE

CALICATA – CALCAREOUS SOILS

SOILS

ALLUVIAL, CALCAREOUS SOILS.

 

PRIMARILY SANDY SOILS RESULTING FROM WIND EROSION (ESPECIALLY DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST WITH THE PRESENCE OF THE STRONG, DRY ZONDA WINDS) AND A LARGE AMOUNT OF CALCAREOUS MATERIAL.

 

SECTORS WITH A PRESENCE OF SMOOTH, ROUND GRANITIC RIVERBED STONES COVERED BY CALCIUM CARBONATE.

ZORZAL WINES COME FROM GUALTALLARY, WHICH IS LOCATED IN THE TUPUNGATO DEPARTMENT IN THE NORTHERNMOST SECTOR OF THE UCO VALLEY. IT IS THE HIGHEST-ALTITUDE ZONE IN THE REGION AND HAS UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS THAT MAKE IT AN EXCEPTIONAL PLACE TO PRODUCE TERROIR WINES.
