Efferus | Ruggabellus

Mostly Mataró/Mouvèdre, this is beautifully fresh and vivid, with black cherry and plum fruit alongside some distinctive animal meatiness and peppery notes. Very expressive and complex, with rich, succulent texture and layers of fruit and spice that make it both a bit wild and very elegant.
