VARIETY: 80% Alicante Bouschet and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
In a world where the mainstream is the generalized massification of desires and products, in a world where even newness seems like more of the same, where desire is bewildered by the subtlety of differences and keeps desiring more in a manic tautology that has replaced products with brands and the good with the well known.
Brutalis is not exactly an elegant wine, but it’s not over-extracted either! It looks at first like a rough soul with hairs all over his chest which goes directly to the matter, but without dismissing subtleties and a gentleman’s good manners, while it bombards your senses with an array of well-polished exaggerations it’s like an iron hand in a glove of soft velvet. A wine for those moments when we are tired of everything and won’t have more of the same. Drink with moderation.
