Sebastián Zuccardi describes the Supercal and Gravascal bottlings as his lieu-dit wines from the Finca Piedra Infinita estate, noting that they are in a stricter style than the Infinita blend and even “a bit unbalanced and extreme early on in terms of their texture.”
The grapes were selected by hand, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation in concrete vats without epoxy, with native yeasts. 50% of the wine was aged in 500lts used oak barrels.
