2019 Escala Humana "Livverá" Béquignol El Zampal (Previously $22)

SKU #1483800

Husband and wife Ayelén and German Massera launched Escala Humana Wine in 2015. German has been making wine since 2003 while studying enology and viticulture in Mendoza and he has worked with Matias Michelini since 2016. German became interested in the history of the Uco Valley and it’s forgotten places and varietals. While the majority of the oldest vines are in Lujan and Maipu, there are a small handful of 4th and 5th generation producers in the Uco Valley who brought vines from Europe. Aye and German fell in love with two of these small vineyards where they grow Malvasia, Bequignol (a variety from Southwest France that makes a light bodied red), Sangiovese, and a few other grape varieties. These vineyards are located in El Zampal, a sub region of Tupungato in the Uco Valley where the soils are comprised of clay, loam and sand. This 100% Bequignol is from a single vineyard in the El Zampal region of the Uco Valley. The nose shows bright red fruits of ripe raspberry and cranberry with underlying notes of clove and cinnamon. The wine is light and silky with medium acidity and light tannin. Might be the only 100% Bequignol imported into the USA, or even made at all! It's a unique varietal wine but has some similarities to Gamay or Trosseau.
