From the Producer
Curii Tinto is 100% Giró from multiple plots in the Sierra de Bernia, harvested by hand, no de-stemmed and foot-trodden in open vats. Fermentation is with native yeast with 100% whole grape clusters, then raised one year in neutral French oak barriques, and a second year in old American oak casks. Bottling is without fining or filtration. It is a richly exotic vino tinto, capable of many years of bottle age, but upon release it shows a wide variety of red and dark fruits, herbs and spices, almost reminiscent of the savory vermouths made from this area. Pair it with wild game with rosemary, spiced lamb chops, or the traditional rice dishes of the region. A truly distinctive Mediterranean wine. 2,500 bottles produced.
