Wine story

Altivo Balance expresses the equilibrium from its conception in the vineyard, since the radicular part of the plant is in perfect harmony with its foliar part (canopy). The grapevine roots are vital for transporting water and nutrients from the ground, that is to say, for the growth and development of the plant. The grapevine leaves, as well, are fundamental in the photosynthesis process, by means of which the plant accumulates energy in its fruits. The balance between these two parts of the plant, is condition without ecuanon to obtain these harmonic, elegant, and delicate wines.
