This mineral, spicy Mediterranean red drinks like a wine two times its price. It is produced from organically grown grapes in the high elevation Terra Alta region. These high lands are located just 45 minutes south of Barcelona in the mountains of Tarragona overlooking the Mediterranean. Ludovicus pays tribute to the roman heritage of this region. The Romans planted vineyards in this area during the 3rd century. Terra Alta neighbors the acclaimed Priorat region. Just like in Priorat, Garnacha and Mazuelo (aka Cariñena, or Samsó) are the most commonly planted grapes. The Garnachas that grow in Terra Alta are among the finest in Spain due to three factors: the elevation, the limestone soil and the plethora of old vine that Terra Alta possesses. PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: This ripe, juicy, vibrantly big-fruited red wine is a real crowd pleaser, and Ludovicus's easy drinking nature makes it a versatile wine, either with meat and pork main courses or with more casual tapas or small plates. Of course, this wine is also a great sipper on its own. TASTING NOTES An amazing wine, it shows boisterous and exuberant black cherry/kirsch liqueur notes, medium to full body, terrific purity and exuberance. This is a delicious bistro-style fruit bomb that is pure and succulent. Talk about hedonism! Drink it over the next several years.
