Gratavinum Silvestris is a really wild and natural wine. It's made with simply fermented grape juice and the wild yeasts from the grapes themselves, with no added ingredients.
It has a lovely dark garnet colour with violet overtones, and the scent is powerful - driven by these delicious notes of ripe red and black fruit that are so clean and high-purity. And you can perceive a little tan backdrop from the casks, which contributes to the wine's richness.
It has an extraordinary width when it hits your mouth, blending ripe fruit with a balanced acidity and volume that is just so delightful. And what about the ending? It's long and persistent, with a wonderful intensity and purity that shines through in every way. Trust me when I say that this wine truly embodies the spirit of nature's faithful one.
