Familia Torres 'Purgatori'

PURGATORI 2017
Cariñena / Garnacha / Syrah
D.O. Costers del Segre
Familia Torres

Flavors of red “forest fruits” like raspberry and red currant fill the aroma of this dark cherry red wine. Intense palate with deep, jammy cherry undertones and delicate, fine-grained tannins. Fermented in stainless steel and barrel aged for 15-18 months. Pairs wonderfully with rich, savory dishes. This wine originated from monks who settled in this region in 1770, and in their work cultivating the land for food, discovered a new terroir and fine wine. Legend has it that large barrels mysteriously disappeared, some saying they were taken up to heaven by angels. A wine of exceptional personality!

PAIRING SUGGESTION: Duck confit and roasted potatoes.
