- Amphora-aged Malvar (of course) from the one-man band that is Vinos Ambiz. According to fab Fabio Bartolomei, "I crushed the grapes and poured everything into the amphorae. I punched down the cap for a week or two, until it stopped rising, and haven’t touched them since then. I scoop out a sample every now and then to check it." Six months of skin contact! Indescribable.
