Edoardo Mirolglio (EM) 100% Mavrud

Descriptions:

Grape Varietal: 100% Mavrud (indigenous Bulgarian grape variety), from a selected vineyard.

The wines made from the late-ripening, low yielding Mavrud varietal have a deep, ruby colour with firm tannins and balanced acidity that frame the blackberry and red, ripe fruit developing a powerful, complex aroma. It has a full-bodied, dense and harmonious taste.

Mavrud is probably the most highly valued local grape variety. Bulgarians take great pride in Mavrud and actively look for wines from this variety in the market. It has been renowned and coveted since the Ancient Trojan War times.

What does Mavrud compare to?  Mavrud is likely to be a predecessor of Nebbiolo.

Fabulous aromas, much-like a beautiful Piemonte Barolo. Deep and rich, yet elegant.
