100% Tinta del país (Tempranillo)


A selection of parcels that give perfectly healthy grapes with great balance and freshness. Located in the area of Fuentecén, bush vines grown at 700m altitude, on slopes with chalky soils and a lot of pebbles. Hand harvested. Cold maceration in inertized tanks to extract a very bright and intense colour, as well as a lot of aroma. Alcoholic fermentation at 22ºC with total skin contact over 17 days. When completed, malolactic fermentation takes place in small stainless steel tanks. Subsequent racking into new American oak barrels over 5 months to bring its great fruit intensity together with the sweet tannins of noble oak. Once ageing has nished, and aer three thorough tastings of each lot of barrels, the nal blend of the wine is prepared. Aer clarication and ltration the wine is bottled and rests in the winery until its release.

Tasting note

LOOK: A very deep coloured wine, with a very attractive cherry red colour and bluish, violet rim.

AROMA & PALATE: With a still glass, the essence of Tempranillo appears: mature red fruit with touches of cherry. Aer swirling, sweet notes appear, enveloped in hints of red liquorice. It is extremely fruity on the palate, powerful and very lively. Balanced acidity with a long, warm and very seductivenish.

Food pairing

A great everyday wine. Ideal for serving alongside tapas of cheese or cured meats, or to accompany traditional Castilian cuisine, stews and roast meats.
