Wine of the Day: Bodegas Volver Tarima Hill
This wine is made from old vines planted at the highest elevations. The vineyards finish where the mountains begin, therefore the name Tarima Hill pays homage to the source of the grapes.
Tarima Hill is grown and produced in the D.O. Alicante–one of Spain’s most historic wine regions. The region has been inhabited for over 7,000 years, and has been producing wine for almost as long. Records show wine production during Roman times and it is believed that the region grew grapes during Greek, Phoenician, and Carthaginian periods with evidence of human occupation as far back as prehistoric times. Amphora, Anfora in Spanish, vessels used to transport wine were certainly produced and used here, with many archeological artifacts documented and on display in local museums.
Vivid ruby. Sexy black raspberry and oak spices on the nose, with notes of fresh rose and anise adding complexity. Sweet, sappy and expansive, offering lively dark berry preserve flavors and a velour-like texture. Graceful and balanced but also packs a punch. Finishes smooth, spicy and quite long.
