Winemaker's Notes:

Yasmin Red is a blend of grapes grown in the winery's vineyards in the Galilee and the Ella Valley. This wine has an appealing ruby red color and a bouquet that is lively, youthful, and with fruit-filled fragrance. Yasmin Red is supple and medium-bodied, with an abundance of ripe red berry fruit and can be enjoyed while still young.

Yasmin Red is a wonderful accompanied to barbeques, suitable for all types of cheeses and Italian and salad dishes and goes down well on every occasion and with every meal.

About Recanati:

The story of the Recanati Winery, a new producer of high quality Mediterranean wines, begins with a profound bond with the Land of Israel coupled with a passion for fine wines. With the creation of the winery, L. Recanati's cherished, lifelong dream to produce truly world-class wines has finally reached fruition.

Owner of one of the finest private wine collections in Israel, L. Recanati is a successful international banker and a member of one of Israel's most prominent families. Prior to making their home in Israel in the early 1900s, Recanati's ancestors had lived for centuries in Italy, one of the world's premier sources of fine wines. Consequently, Italy and the U.S. (where Recanati spent a portion of his student years and met his American-born wife) represent the winery's first two export markets.

Chief winemaker at Recanati is Lewis Pasco, an American-born graduate of the U.C. Davis wine program and an accomplished chef. Formerly a winemaker at Napa Valley's Chimney Rock and for Sonoma's Marimar Torres, Lewis brings to Recanati a devotion to artistry and craftsmanship in winemaking. This dedication, combined with Recanati's state-of-the-art winemaking facility, has led to an impressive line of wines.
