Product Details

The "Katharsis" for the ancient Greeks was a purification ritual linked to the worship of water and lifestyle changes. In this case, it is a dream that comes true. A knot of passion, determination and inner fire that materializes in a wine that is its essence. Fury and ardor are transformed into body, structure, coloring intensity. The torment and fatigue in persistent aromas that penetrate deeply, where the original ideas come from. Care and knowledge in balance and elegance.

The vineyard where Katharsis comes from, is located on a particularly arid and dry land and the harvest is done with overripe and slightly withered grapes.
