Architects Antonella & Massimo hail from Piedmonte, having moved to Barcelona for work around 1995. But city life was becoming draining and they yearned for a slower lifestyle where they could reconnect with the land and grow their own produce again. They found a property in Bonastre, just over an hour south of Barcelona, a place with abandoned Sumoll vines, and the rest they say is history
For more than 12 years now, they have been working with near extinct varieties and organic vineyards to make their beautiful wines. They represent the beauty of the Mediterranean climate they are from, display freshness and acidity and are an absolute joy to drink.
GT is 100% Garrut, known in Spain as Monastrell, known in France as Mourvedre. It is a bright and vibrant wine, with a prickle of dissolved CO2. Aromas of cherries, fresh soil and dried herbs. The palate is alive, showing tart cherry flavour, and a touch more earth with a kiss of tannin. IMPORTANT: please decant this wine before serving and enjoy chilled.
