ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Proyecto Nakkal Nakcool Vino Tinto
Proyecto Nakkal Nakcool Vino Tinto is a juicy red blend of Merlot and Muscat Ottonel. Super-drinkable and great for sharing. Aromatic wildflowers, Bing cherry and red plum fruit, supple tannins, and a hint of mint on the finish. The Merlot comes from the Las Violeta vineyard in Canelones, and Muscat Ottonel was rescued from abandoned vineyards in Rincón Del Cerro. Hand-harvested and fermented separately. Merlot was the first to be harvested, looking for low alcohol content and a lot of freshness, while the Muscat Ottonel was harvested at the maximum point of maturation, macerated with skins for a week to provide aromatics and body. Native yeasts for fermentation, only tank for aging. Blended and bottled with no fining, filtration, or added SO².
About Proyecto Nakkal
Two friends, one project, and the grapes as the protagonists. Proyecto Nakkal is made by Santi Degásperi and Nico Monforte childhood friends who studied oenology together, and in 2020 started their dream of making natural wines in Uruguay. Why the name Nakkal? The Nakkales, ancient priests of the lost continent “Atlantis” guarded the knowledge, wisdom, and energy of the population. Among its principles, intervene as little as possible to generate a natural balance and guarantee collective well-being. An inspiration and the premise for making their wines.
The vineyards are located in two regions in the south of Uruguay, El Colorado, and Paso de La Arena. Both are highly influenced by the Río de La Plata, with a distance of 15km from El Colorado, and 4km from Paso de La Arena. As for the climate, both are characterized by having clay soils, with a high content of organic matter, a cool climate, a high rainfall regime, and a moderate thermal amplitude. The style of their wines reflects these characteristics of the area, which allow them to produce wines with a lower alcohol content, light tannins, good acidity, and a lot of freshness. All vineyards are managed with sustainable production protocols, seeking the greatest care for the environment and the environment, and the use of raw materials and by-products from the place. The winery avoids the use of any type of product that harms the vineyard or the ecosystem in which they coexist.
