Description

Fermentation takes place under controlled temperature to make sure the maximum aromatic and tannic potential of the Tempranillo grapes is extracted. The wine is then aged in American oak barrels for 6 months and then, for 2 – 3 years in the bottle. Far beyond the requirements for a crianza wine.

Region

Valdepeñas takes its name from the ancient city by the same name, that lies on a sun-baked river valley dotted by small rocky formations (Val-de-peñas – Valley of Rocks). Located in the South of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. The area is almost entirely encircled by both La Mancha Denominación de Origen on the North border and Andalusia on its Southern limits. It experiences extreme weather conditions, with temperatures reaching up to over 40 ºC in the summer and dropping to as low as -10 ºC in the winter.

Tasting notes

Intense ruby red colour. Deep and complex aromas of luscious ripe red fruits, oak and spices. Pleasant and soft on the palate with a good tannic expression and a long finish.

Food pairing

Great with lamb and perfect with tapas.
