"While reflecting new world intensity, Karasì draws inspiration from its ancient roots. A wine of distinctive varietal identity, with a perfect expression of the unique characteristics of its exceptional terroir. Karasì is a tribute to the 6,100 year wine tradition of Armenia and to its Areni Noir grape, which has created the authentic spirit of this wine. Its name is a reference to its long aging in traditional large, clay, amphorae (karasì being the Armenian translation “from amphora”).

The result of intensive and meticulous field selection the Areni Noir sourced for Zorah was rediscovered from ancient vines from the abandoned vineyards of a XIII century monastic complex. Originating from the birthplace of viticulture and extremely resistant to disease, this grape’s particularity lies in its capacity to adapt perfectly to continental climates and in its very thick skin which, while helping maintain the elegance and freshness of the grape, also protects it from the drastic day/night temperature variations.

Amazing wine - Wow, just wow. Totally worth the price point. Smooth, peppery. Not too bold. From the shadows of Noah's Ark!
