Rubis Chocolate Wine 50cl Non Vintage (Case of 2)
About this deal
Rich, complex, uncompromising chocolate wine that luxuriates in difference. Darkly decadent Spanish Tempranillo grapes and precious essence of cacao come together to create a taste experience to surprise and delight the senses. Notes of rich cherry and red fruit enveloped in velvety dark chocolate makes it a perfect accompaniment to most desserts such as rich chocolate fondants and fruit filled tarts. I was curious as to how this would taste as it sounded like the perfect pairing but was unsure how it worked as a wine.
There’s only one thing I like more than chocolate. Actually, there are two things I like more than chocolate, and that’s wine and Christmas. So, imagine my joy when I found out Morrisons is selling a chocolate wine that taste just like Christmas.
Rubis is a luxury wine paired with the inspiration of the Aztecs. Their ancient wisdom and famous cacao infusions was the gateway to Rubis as they blended precious seeds with great care to create this indulgent and potent wine.
I would recommend this as an after dinner drink to round a meal off nicely, just as the Aztec Royalty did. They knew what they were doing! Not sure about the human sacrifice though, I would give that a swerve. Rubis is a chocolate wine liqueur made from a blend of fortified red wine and premium chocolate flavours. It uses the best tempranillo grapes from the centre of Spain and velvety premium dark chocolate to give Rubis its bold fruity and chocolatey flavours.Rubis suggest the wine is chilled and served with ice to experience the best flavour or at room temperature. In Religious ceremonies, hundreds of thousands of people a year were sacrificed and to be brave enough to put yourself forward for this was considered an honour. This usually involved heart extraction and when the ceremony was over, they didn’t leave anything to waste. Their flesh was baked with corn and fed to the Nobles. If there were enough sacrifices the whole city would be able to feast on the remains. Before the person was sacrificed, they were given cacao drinks mixed with human blood to prepare them as an offering to the Gods. Currency
