Sicus Terrers Mediterranis is the Project of Eduard Pie, a young viticultor that belongs to a new generation of wine makers from Bonastre in the Baix Penedès. A family owned winery with more than a 100 years history and experience in producing Bulk wines, until a few years back, when Eduard took charge of the winery, renovating it and starting to produce good quality wines, he works with indigenous varieties alone and his wines are organically grown and amphora fermented, some of which are buried in the vineyard.
Tasting Notes: Red rubi colour with violet highlights. Summer red fruits, gooseberry and strawberry flavours, silky, smooth textured and good acidity levels. Lovely and pleasant wine with a long and elegant finish.
