2011 Vinos Ambiz Malvar Sobremadre

SKU #1133394

Yet another example of the exciting vinous explorations occurring just a short drive from Madrid, Vinos Ambiz is a project of Fabio Bartolomei, a person of mixed Scottish and Italian heritage who has some strong opinions about his wine (strong opinions you can check out for yourself on the back label, as impressive a manifesto as I've seen on a wine bottle in a long time). For this wine, a grape more commonly used for brandy production, Malvar, is given the "orange wine" treatment of extended skin maceration to produce a wine bursting with aromas of apricot preserves and spice, particularly cinnamon stick. On the palate, this is intense, chewy wine brimming with personality. It's worth noting that Ambiz earns serious extra green points for bottling exclusively in recycled glass bottles, and extra hippy points for never adding sulfur to the wines.
