2021 Birichino Car Car Glou Glou Akashita

Varietal: 100% Carignane
Style: Unfined / Unfiltered / Organic / Biodynamic
Akashita is a creature that appears alternatively hidden in dark clouds or near floodgates as either protective or menacing. The wine is 100% old vine Carignane vinified via carbonic maceration. Tasting notes of raspberry, strawberry, cedar, and a touch of tobacco. “Glou glou” onomatopoeically implies a wine to be consumed as the “glug glug” echoes from the throat, with one’s monster mouth open wide.
