In Spain, the Tempranillo grape is typically viewed as royalty as it accounts for over 50% of the country's quality wine. It is planted in nearly every winemaking region and is traditionally viewed as the grape best able to embody the true terroir of the land. This wine is no different as it encapsulates La Mancha's duality: rich history and modern technology.
Fermentation in stainless steel, temperature-controlled vats. Maceration for 16 days.
Ruby-red with garnet highlights, this wine shows the aromas typical to La Mancha: black cherries, raspberries, strawberry jam, and spices. However, underneath those aromas, pervasive minerality and spiciness add to the complexity of this delicious wine. On the palate, crisp acidity, smooth tannins, and a moderate to full body give this wine great structure and ultimate ageworthiness.
Especially recommended for medium-aged sheep and goat’s milk cheeses. It is best with lamb and goat meat but can also be paired with veal and beef. Ideal for stews, such as the Asturian ham and bean stew.
