Rubis Chocolate Wine Liqueur is a fortified, chocolate flavoured, red wine liqueur!
It is made by flavouring fortified Tempranillo wine with chocolate essence. The red wine base is made from 100% Tempranillo grapes sourced from the wine growing region of La Mancha in central Spain. The wine is made in the usual way: grapes are harvested, pressed and fermented and then the wine is “fortified” with a neutral alcohol spirit (a very basic grape brandy). This addition of alcohol stops fermentation whilst there is still a high sugar content leaving a natural sweetness in the wine. The fortified red wine is finally blended with chocolate essences and the producers of Rubis seem to have got the recipe just right!
