Zorah Karasi Areni Noir 2018
The palate reflects the exotic nose with hints of soft red fruits, dried mountain herbs and wild earth. Generous and soft, with balanced, full-bodied structure and mature tannins before a long, evolved mineral finish.
Zorik Gharibian, an Armenian based in Italy, worked with Alberto Antonini [winemaker] and Stefano Bartolomei [viticulturist] to find precisely the right location for a vineyard to make his wine. After three years of research and detailed analysis of every aspect of the region, he finally bought the land in Vayotz Dzor, which is historically known as the most prestigious wine region in Armenia.The vines are ungrafted and are planted at an altitude of 1,400 metres.Bright ruby red in colour, this wine has complex aromas of red fruits, lightly spiced with an elegant toasted note. This is a wine for those who think they have tried everything!
