100% Tinta del País
Single Vineyard. Planted 70 years ago.
Manual harvest. Alcoholic fermentation & maceration in 500lts french fûtes at controlled temperature. Long maceration of 3-4 weeks. Malolactic fermentation in new french barrels.
18 months in new french barrels. 12 months in bottle.
Deep cherry color with purple hues.
Elegant wine, with a good aromatic range and great complexity. Aromatic bouquet of excellent mature black fruit, spicy notes, balsamic, toasted and mineral notes.
Tasty, broad, powerful, but with fine and elegant tannins, with the acidity of vines grown in very poor land. Long, pleasant and persistent finish. It will have a long life because of its structured tannins and noble-acidity.
Roasted pork, red meat, chorizos, fois gras, mature cheeses.
