Description

Grapes are macerated at cool temperatures to allow for the gentle extraction of sweet tannins and complex compounds, which encourages the production of a wine with an expressive character to compliment the red berry flavours typical of Tempranillo. Fermentation then takes places between 22 and 25 ºC. Viña Albali Tempranillo Selección is aged in American oak barrels for 2-3 months, which provides body and structure to the wine. Malolactic fermentation also take place to soften tannins.
