Munjebel® Rosso P, cuvée Perpetuum

The first bottlings of our MunJebel® rosso classico were blends of 2 vintages which I have always liked as it gives a good idea of a larger area instead of a vintage wine. When I stopped blending vintages as of the 2012 vintage to search for more precision, I kind of missed the round and evolved “old-school” style of this wine. In 2016 I decided to produce a similar style wine again, applying the “perpetual” method of great solera wines. The first edition will be a blend of 2015, 2016 and 2017 with bottling 25% of this first edition in 2020 and adding the selected wine of the 2018 vintage to fill up the tank again. Perpetuum is born!
