The band, formed in 2008, released their debut-album Opus Eponymous on cult label Rise Above in 2010. Consisting of vocalist Papa Emeritus III and his Nameless Ghouls, they soon built a huge online buzz, and the member’s true identities was speculated upon and discussed on forums all over the world. After being courted by several labels, Ghost released their second album Infestissumam on Universal Music in 2013, and won both Grammis and P3 Gold awards. Produced by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, the EP “If You Have Ghosts” was released the same year, seeing Ghost interpret other artist’s songs, including eyebrow-raising cuts from ABBA and Army of Lovers.
2015 saw Ghost take a step into the top league with their third, gold-selling album Meliora. Produced by Teddybears’ Klas Åhlund, it went straight to the top of the Swedish charts, and entered the American Billboard chart at no. 8. The same year, Ghost won the most prestigious of all music prizes; the american Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance. In Sweden, they won a Grammis for “Best Hardrock/Metal”.
About Ghost Papastrello
A red, powerful but well balanced wine, with perfumes of fruits and cacao and with a red colour of great intensity. The wine is perfect with roast red meat, game and aged cheeses, but is also excellent also on its own. The very typical Veronese grapes, Corvina and Rondinella, go under a natural drying process, without any alteration of the humidity and temperature level.
Afterwards the wine goes through slow fermentation and a maceration of 8-10 days, followed by a second fermentation on the residue of Amarone’s dried grapes. From this second fermentation the wine gets more powerful, higher in alcohol, more tannins and acidity. Then the wine refines in oak barrels for approximately 12 months.
Aroma: Intense scents of ripe cherry, with ample spiciness and light notes of withered flowers
Taste: Powerful, with a rich and mouth-filling structure, dense tannins and a long persistence
Colour: Intense ruby red
