The Psi project has grown, with more farmers now involved, adding to a multi-layered complexity. The wine is made from 100% old Tinto del País vines planted across seven different villages.

The 2012 is a deep plum-cherry, bright and lustrous. The nose presents very crisp, pure, crystalline, primary fruit, rose and violet notes, precise and focussed. The palate mirrors the aromatics offered on the nose: vibrant, perfumed and rich in red and black-berried fruit, supported by earthy, firm, well-integrated, ripe tannins - lovely balance, drive and length.
