4Kilos was set up in 2006 by former Anima Negra winemaker Francesc Grimalt (known for his efforts in rescuing the Callet variety) and musician Sergio Caballero (who is also founding partner and director of the Sonar music festival)
They are committed not only to native varieties, but also to finding the right combination of strain, soil, and climate for each wine. The name 4Kilos comes from their initial investment of 4 million pesetas, which so far looks like money well spent.
The 12 Volts is made from a blend of local varieties Callet and Fogoneu, along with Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, sourced from vineyards in the north and south of the island. The grapes spend 9 months in mix of foudre and first and second use French oak barrels.
Fresh and fruity nose with aromas of ripe strawberry, raspberry, liquorice, cedar and hints of lactic notes. It is juicy and well balanced with a silky texture and very pleasant after- taste.
Joint venture between Colli Berici and Cielo family in Veneto. Cooperative producing great value wines...
