AHARI is an expression of both the past and the future. The Graciano in
this blend is not only a traditional Riojan variety that is worthy of revival.
Due to its energetic acidity it also makes the perfect variety to cope
with a warmer future. Ahari shows that despite its known rusticity,
Graciano can certainly be made into an elegant wine.
Ahari is characterized by its juicy freshness and finely-balanced
tannins with some grip. Flavours of blueberry and black cherry,
herbal with notes of thyme and floral notes of violet. The
perfect expression of the Rioja Alavesa profile.
What ́s in a name
Ahari refers to a red elf from Basque mythology, who goes out
in the night to scare people at their homes, just for fun. The
drawing on the front label is an ode to Pablo Picasso’s painting
depicting Guernica. And the back label cites Pablo Picasso:
“All you can imagine is real.”
