**From vineyards over fifty years old in the Fragula cru at 450m high, this rose from Gaglioppo grapes embodies the style of wine that MENAT likes to make—which is to say, wines that they like to drink. They aim to enhance Gaglioppo’s floral and fruity expressions in this cuvee by working with partial wholecluster and partially destemmed fruit. **

**It has a beautiful brick red color and shows off a balsamic nose, with flavors of blood orange, anise, mint. This wine is lined with a silky layer of tannins and bright acidity. A spectacular wine with a savory and long persistance and mineral finish. Just 2,000 bottles produced.**

### **Nicola, after years dedicated to the importation of Georgian artisanal wines and the selection of coffee and other products in Latin America, moved to Mexico, and it is here where Michele, a longtime friend, visited him and proposed to reorganize Michele's grandfather's winery and vineyards, located in the municipality of San Nicola dell'Alto, in the Ionian part of Calabria.**

### **The two begin to work to create a real ‘marani’ (Georgian-style cellar) in the country, and the MENAT project was born, with the first vintage 2018. an additioon of friend Gianni Lonetti, a passionate winemaker of the area, and with the following year another friend Roldano Bitto, cook and oenologist.**

### **The 4 members of MENAT are very elusive and have no social media and strict philosophy about their project, how its made, where its distributed and how it is spoken of.**

### **The conception of winemaking learned in Georgia and the choice to apply a serious biodynamic thanks to the help of the agronomist Michele Lorenzetti are the basis of the project. Three wines produced up until now all gathered together by the lightness and from the ease of drinking, a reference point for the wines of the group, which is why they opt for the total absence of exogenous products, including sulfur, maintain a fully biodynamic practice and use imported Georgian Kvevri.**
