Bodegas Perica wants to present its new Wine “Sonrisa de Diana”. An excellent 2012 Reserve of selected grapes from vines over 60 years old, made in French oak vats and aged in French limousin oak barrels
But "Diana's Smile" is much more than a Reserve, since the funds obtained from its sale are going to be used to finance the Study-Project against the "Malignant Melanoma" that is being developed by the CIBIR (Center for Biomedical Research of La Rioja) and the Carlos III University of Madrid.
An international study that wants to end a disease that kills nearly 48,000 people a year, according to figures from the WHO (World Health Organization) and to which Bodegas Perica wants to do its bit.
“Sonrisa de Diana” is an excellent tribute Wine that was born to show solidarity.
Tasting Notes Perica Reserva
Intense red-garnet color, with a high, clean and bright robe. Complex nose, with attractive notes of red and black fruits in perfect harmony with spicy aromas, coffee and cocoa, a consequence of the wine's stay in an excellent French oak. It is pleasant and silky, highlighting the sweetness and fineness of the tannins. In the retronasal route, the spicy notes and ripe fruit appear again. Long and persistent aftertaste. Its balanced and elegant structure promises very good life prospects in the bottle.
