Tinto de Rulo is the project of three friends
who, by pooling resources, make wine together - but even then it's
a small project, making just 1200 cases in total.
Tiny plots of Pais and Malbec, ranging from 70 to 200 years in
age, are spread across Itata and Bio Bio. They have a little plot
of Carignan from just over the hills in Maule as well. Fruit from
these pristine organic vineyards is fermented in clay amphorae and
very old native rauli pipes with only minimal sulphur added at
bottling - these wines are a proper introduction to this wilder
side of Chile.
