Project Description

Attis Atalante

The white Caíño variety perfectly represents the duality of Atalanta, female lion guiding Attis chariot in mythology. On the one hand, we have the fresh, delicate and floral character of the myth girl, on the other, the intensity and claw of the lion in which she transformed. A light, aromatic wine with good acidity reinforced by the complexity and the volume that gives it its ageing in oak. Pair it with your tastiest seafood and meaty fish. Ideal with creamy and intense cheeses.
