“Ancestros: Their wisdom is our legacy.
Ancestros is a tribute to our ancestors and, in particular, to our grandfather. Person with a lot of tenacity, paused and patient who taught us that everything comes in due time and that in life you have to know how to wait. Tenacity to cultivate the best vineyard. Patience to await the arrival of what we desire for five years. “Simmered” wine that requires you to devote the necessary time to your total enjoyment after such a prolonged ageing. A wine full of complexity and nuances with added delicacy and elegance. It accompanies white meats, game birds and seafood stews.
