Ameztoi Rose 'Hijo de Rubentis' Extra Brut Txakolina 2015 - Magnum
Ameztoi is one of Txakoli’s top producers, comprised of 20 hectares of Atlantic-influenced vines. Now headed by seventh generation Ignacio, wines focus on indigenous varieties, fermented in stainless steel and bottled with natural residual carbonic acid (AKA, spritz!) ‘Hijo de Rubentis’ is a bubbly varietal 100% Hondarrabi Beltza, showing notes of zesty grapefruit and tart red berries. Nothing shows you care like a magnum of sparkling!
One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
