Description

Its expressive tannic components are optimised thanks to a gentle maceration and pumping over for several short periods. After fermenting at a controlled temperature to extract its maximum aromatic potential and elegant tannins, the wine ages in American oak barrels for 12 months. Then, the ageing process continues in the bottle for a period of 2 to 3 years.

Región

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 cherry red. This wine exhibits a complex aroma of vanilla, chocolate, spices and fruit jam. Pleasing and soft palate with a good tannic expression and long smooth finish.

Food pairing

Versatile wine that goes perfectly with grilled meat and Manchego cheese.
