Kepos is Greek, meaning a mixed garden. 50% Alicante Nero (aka Grenache), 30% Mourvedre, 20% Carignano- sourced in the vineyards closest to the sea, in Ampeleia di Sotto, where the Mediterranean scrub dominates the landscape and permeates the air with its fragrances. The parcels are at 200-350 meters above sea level, so slightly higher than the parcels for Unlitro, harvested a touch later and at lower yields. The varieties are co-harvest and co-fermented. We call this the "grown-up Unlitro, as it has longer aging and a later release date.

The 2020 Kepos is a unique blend of Alicante Nero, Mourvèdre and Carignane. It offers plenty of dark fruit character intermingled with lavender, rose petal and dried herbs. I find Kepos a bit less distinctive than the other wines in the range, most of which are single-variety wines, but it is nevertheless an engaging and very pretty wine.

Offering a mix of spice and savory herbs, with a dash of raspberry and cherry, this red starts out smooth before dusty tannins take hold. Needs some bold food, such as grilled lamb with herbs or grilled eggplant. Alicante Nero, Mourvèdre and Carignano. Drink now through 2026. 1,416 cases made, 500 cases imported.
