In the age of the sail ships, safe and healthy provisions were crucial for the success of the adventure. A "liara" was a tin cup measurement for the crew's daily ration of wine.
The Aliara is an assemblage made in small and precious quantities as a tribute to this tradition. This blend spent 18 months in new French barrels before being bottled. Inviting aromas of cherry, blueberry, apricot and fig are complemented by coffee, chocolate, vanilla, cassis and floral notes such as violet and jasmine. The palate is full, round and juicy, with velvety tannins, hints of bitter chocolate and long finish.
