This Gold-Medal-winning red blend of Sumoll, Grenache & Carignan offers a rich nose of dark fruits and warm spices, with an underlying hint of minerality and herbal complexity. A must-buy for any fan of premium, boutique Euro reds.
50% Sumoll, 25% Grenache & 25% Carignan.
The winery writes "The wine’s color is an intense Tyrian purple with a complex nose of wild fruits and warm spices underscored by a subtle mineral nuance. The palate follows with a delicious combination of black and purple fruits and herbs that is decidedly Mediterranean in style, accented slightly by a delicate use of oak."
