Aiming for a wine that provides a glimpse of the place where it is from, we have decided to combine the three second wines “Grace Merlot”, “Grace Cabernet Sauvignon” and “Grace Cabernet Franc”, whose varieties are listed on the front label, into a single wine from each respective vintage. This wine is “Akeno”, the name reflects our praise for the place where it is from. After rigorous selection in the vineyard and the winery, small lots were selected and vinified separately with scrupulous attention to detail as well as gentle extraction. Each varietal or lot was matured in French oak barrels and bottled without clarification or filtration.
Bright ruby color. Rich aroma with ripe cassis and black cherries, and liquorice, black pepper, and dark chocolates. Intensely concentrated, rich and plentiful of Umami accompanied by a beautiful acidity & pleasant tannins.
Merlot (56%) , Cabernet Sauvignon (24%), Cabernet Franc (16%), Petite Verdot (4%)
