The Mediterranean climate in this area features tremendous oscillations between daytime high temperatures and nighttime lows, as well as 55–60% average humidity and maximum summer temperatures above 30ºC.

The grapes were hand-picked in April, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation took place at 24º–28ºC. 10% oak was used during fermentation to increase color set and stability in the wines. Once the fermentation was concluded, 20% of the wine was aged in French oak for 8 months to sweeten and increase the complexity.

Temperatures in the areas closest to the Andes are cooler due to the cold mountain air. The lands close to the Coastal Mountains have a lower daily temperature oscillation due to the maritime influence. A selection of vineyards planted on silty soils with excellent drainage at the foot of the Andes is carefully combined with vineyards close to the Coastal Mountains, where the soils are heavier and include a combination of silt and clay.

Santa Rita's 120 range has been named in tribute to 120 freedom fighters who sheltered at the Santa Rita winery during Chile's war of independence in 1814. 

Ideal with red meats, cheeses, pasta with seasoned sauces and grilled meats.
