The flagship La Bratta range was inspired by the village of La Bratta in Northern Italy where Garry's mother was born, and his grandfather and great grandfather were vignerons. The wines are a true reflection of the best fruit and blends from the vineyard and Forest Grove region.
The La Bratta Rosso displays lifted black cherry, blackcurrant and dark chocolate with spicy undertones. A complex, savoury and rich style that is medium to full bodied with a very ripe and fine tannin structure. Flavours of black cherry and underlying dark cocoa are pronounced. A long, persistent and intriguing wine that is drinking beautifully now but will reward patience.
