Vinos Ambiz Rosado
Region: Sierra de Gredos
Vinos Ambiz is the project of Fabio Bortolomei who grew up in Scotland to Italian parents before moving to Madrid 20 years ago. He works with a number of under-rated indigenous varieties including Dore, Malvar, Airen, Albillo and Chelva. He vinifies with a bare minimum of intervention in the winery using a mixture of amphora, stainless steel, plastic, oak and concrete, rarely producing more than a 1000 bottles of each cuvee.
Fabio's rosado is made a single plot of old vine Grenache in Sierra de Gredos. Spicy and intense, it's packed with balsamic strawberry and raspberry fruit tinged with wild herbs and earthy minerality. Full and generous, this is a great rose to have with food.
