    Winemaker Notes

    The deep, almost opaque color, the exuberant aromas and luscious flavors of blackberries and cherries tell you this is not a wine to be taken lightly but rather it should be enjoyed to its fullest.

    The grapes are hand-harvested into small baskets to prevent bruising. The bunches are brought to triage tables for selection of only the healthiest, ripest grapes. The long slow maceration enables us to extract great aroma and color potential. The complexity of the wine is enhanced by malolactic fermentation.

    Bodegas y Vinedos Ilurce
    Bodegas y Viñedos Ilurce is a family company founded by Grandfather Amador Escudero in 1940, after the Spanish Civil War. The most characteristic thing about this company is the hard work of its owners: Amador Escudero: Agriculturist engineer and farmer. He takes care of the vineyard, where he spends most of his time, although during the harvest he works mostly in the cellar (he does the punch down, pump power, racking and pressing).

    Inmaculada Escudero has a degree in Economics and is export manager of the company. She uses to work mainly in the office, taking care of the economic aspects of the business. Ana Escudero, with a degree in Chemistry, used to work as a proffessor at the University of Zaragoza, but in this company she is the main winemaker.

    A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
