In 1995 we discovered that some vines produced grapes whose flavor was very different to the one of the vines around them. They produced a sensation of fullness, of volume, with notes that were more alike to a wine than to a grape. Two years later, we made our first CIRSION, which we didn’t commercialized, and we tested that with a short aging, the wine reached a level of incredible silkiness and a fruit complexity out of the ordinary. Each vintage we walk through the vineyards looking for this curious natural peculiarity, and that’s how, one in a thousand, the CIRSION grapes are picked.

  • Great layer, deep, almost impenetrable
  • Intense, complex. Enigmatic: smoke, moist earth. Small black fruits and some red, even flowers
  • Powerful, voluminous, delicate, with very fine tannin, a true caress to the palate. Licorice, chocolate, mint, like an exquisite candy filled with freshness. It is long, almost immense and the freshness of the fruit remains in the aftertaste
  • Lamb
  • Roast Chicken
  • Steak
