The wine comes from a special vineyard at 950 meters altitude. The cuvee is called MEMORIA to pay tribute to good friends and great time spent together.
Deep cherry color. On the nose, the wine is elegant and well balanced with black fruits, reminiscent of vanilla and leather. Hints of spices, minerals and coffee. On the palate the wine is also well balanced and pleasant. Round and elegant with a long and pleasing aftertaste.
Pairs well with pastas, creams and soups. Likewise, these wines are ideal for more subtle and elaborate first courses, like a rice with lobster.
Ideal for grilled red meats and stews and game stews and for the typical roast lamb.

GOLD MEDAL, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2019
Brilliant ruby. Exotic scents of dark berry compote, incense and potpourri, with a vanilla note in the background. Lively and precise in the mouth, but with a velvety quality to its sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors. Finishes on a sappy note, with excellent clarity, round tannins and very good persistence. I find this sexy wine very approachable now but it has the depth to age. - Josh Raynolds
