Butterfly /pillangó/ is a miracle of the Nature: it’s the symbol of beauty and soul. It symbolises metamorphosis, just like how grape turns into wine.
Harvested from the oldest merlot plantation of Pillango slope and selected from the most beautiful barrels of 16 months aging.
PILLANGO shows more than the varietal character does. Its complex, deep and definite, still lively and refreshing.
The intensive fruity aromas of dried sour cherry and blackberry are melting with refined spicy notes.
Catches us with its long-lasting spicy oaky finish (of chocolate).
Nice match with game dishes with e.g. savoury forest fruit garnish. It is also recommended with bitter chocolate desserts.
Long and cold winter; warm and sunny spring; cooling down in July, but from August to October nice and long summer with warm days, cool nights. Harvest 2011: August 31st October 13th under ideal harvest weather conditions, a vintage we always dreamed of.
