The Edition Limitada "B" by Caliterra , consists of Bordeaux grape varieties, but in a completely different weighting. The Petit Verdot plays the leading role here, supplemented with the Cabernets and sometimes a little bit of Malbec (not in 2016).
This limitada series is placed above the Tributo line, the percentage of new barrique barrels is significantly higher in the Edition Limitada wines, usually around 50%.
The 2016 "B" is intense and fruity, spices like peppers and tarragon, cherries and blueberries, rounded off by a fine cocoa scent. A wine with concentration and great length, very intense and juicy.
