PAIRINGS OF THE MONTH
Nowhere to run (2010) – Richard Mosse
We selected this amazing photo showing the mountains of South Kivu, in Rwanda. These hills are very rich in rare earth minerals, such as gold and coltan, which are extracted by local artisanal miners, who are often forced to hand a payoff to rebels that rule these remote territories. Thanks to the usage of infrared film, Richard Mosse is able to provide a completely new perspective through colors. In the same way, creative winemakers use different techniques and materials to create wines that are able to provide the consumers a different perspective of a wine or of a varietal.
Glup Cinsalut - Longavì, Chile
Crafted from a premium selected vineyard parcel in the Valley of Itata. This wine is a surprising expression of a varietal, and of a terroir, that carries breathtaking intensity and elegance. Light red, with red fruit notes and wild herbs. Soft tannins with good acidity that bring freshness and a long finish. Aged for 6 months in amphora.
