Grown at the remarkable altitude of 2,700 m.a.s.l. and suffused with a divine elegance, this wine is both physically and spiritually a gift from the heavens. The perfect cure for apathy, it could coax a smile out of even the most jaded among us. Fresh like a cool mountain breeze and warm like oven-fresh bread, it seduces nose and palate with delicate aromas of strawberry and cherry. Its floral fragrance, reminiscent of rose petals, together with its fine tobacco notes and its touch of spice provide the necessary grip. While it slips into the mouth on soft quiet kitten-feet, it seizes the palate with power and tenacity, and, in the throat, says farewell with the roar of a wildcat. Light and playful, but with striking amplitude, it is guaranteed to tickle your fancy and lift your spirits.
