Garrofanata is a very old autochthonous grape variety from the Marche and was thought to be extinct. Only 5 winemakers in the world grow this variety. It was planted by Castrum Morisci in 2016 to preserve the native varieties and to pay tribute to the agricultural and viticultural history of their ancestors.
Garofanata starts with a nice BLOPPP and into the glass with the good drop. It beautifully exudes an interesting and unusual smell, dried flowers, light yeast and reminds us of gummy bears.
The fun really starts with the first sip. Light creaminess meets fine soft bubbles and what kind of bubbles. Nice and extraordinary. The taste also evokes memories of gummy bears.
