Gaintus Vertical is a complex and lively wine. Its intense ruby color and balmy scent of fresh cherries and toasty cedar is framed by notes of Mediterranean herbs. The flavor is spicefilled, mature and suave, married with a vivacious acidity that brings freshness. There is a clear echo of tart summer cherries on the finish overlaying a crunchy minerality.
