Hipperia is the emblem of the winery. It uses the fruit of evolution and experience acquired over the last 15 years. To a base of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot they add the elegance of Cabernet Franc and the power of the Petit Verdot. The result is a wine born from a balanced blend of four varieties working to create a unique harmony.
Some say that Hipperia means “Land of horses” while others claim it is the ancestor of the word “Iberia”-Spain and Portugal- and derived from the word “hippos” -horse in Greek-, so it has a double meaning: identiication of the source of wines – Spain- and the emblem of the winery represented by the horse (in fact an ancient wooden horse from Asia decorates the winery’s entrance and therefore has become the emblem of the winery)
Elegant and profound, Hipperia is a novel wine that expresses aromas and lavours of fully mature red berry fruits. The scents and fresh balsamic aromas of Pago’s wine highlight its power, maturity and mineral richness.
