Altura means altitude, height above sea level, a combination of daytime solar intensity and atmospheric pressure.

This delicate Pinot Noir displays a slight ruby red color, granted by its youth, as well as details of a violet bouquet mixed with elegant scents of cherries. The sweet tannins are a prelude to its typicity and elegant expression of Pinot Noir's varietal character.
