Svmma Varietalis 2010

Marqués de Griñón

SVMMA is a Latin word used to indicate that the epitome of knowledge has been reached. Indeed, as a result of two generations of care and research, the Falcó family has crafted this high caliber wine. Made from 70% Syrah, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Petit Verdot, the grapes are separately fermented and aged in French oak (10-14 months) before final assemblage.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby-red in color with purple reflections, this wine shows rich notes of dark berries, clove, smoke and pepper. On the palate, layers of mineral and fruit notes are interwoven, accompanied by soft tannins, silky texture and excellent concentration

Food Pairing

Pair this with hearty Mediterranean fare: house-cured meats, chorizo, grilled or spit-roasted pork and spice-rubbed lamb.
