- Tasting Note
The name Superunda refers to the action of a Spanish nobleman during the tragic tsunami in El Callao, Lima, in 1746, where he used his wooden ships to help save the population affected by the great sea surge.
The man in question was José Antonio Manso de Velasco, who decided to overcome the devastation and take action, embarking on the reconstruction of Lima. He did such wonderful work that he earned the recognition of the local inhabitants and the King of Spain himself, who, in 1748, awarded Manso de Velasco with the noble title that he chose himself and says everything: Count of Superunda, which means “above the waves.”
Dense, elegant aroma with hints of black fruit jam (plum, blueberry) and underlying notes of toasted bread. Complex, fleshy and balanced on the palate, with long notes of jam and tobacco, leading to a pleasant, delicious finish.
