Personifying wine is a common practice when tasting and describing wine. Words like “she”, “gorgeous”, “strong”, “lively”, etc. It brings the wine to life and begins a discussion about something that is a visceral experience, and really has no words. The founders at Carlotta Wines decided to let a graphic design artist portray the description of this delicious Rhone-style red blend. Please meet, Maria!
“Maria is an exotic and seductive wine. With a perfumed nose of lavender, black cherry, plum and espresso bean, this wine offers everything we look for in creating a perfect Rhone-inspired blend. The palate is focused and silky with layers of dried strawberry and fresh plum accented by rose petal and dark chocolate notes. While providing plenty of fruit, Maria is structured and refreshing and can be enjoyed now or after some time in the cellar.”
