  • Region

    The area of Castilla-La Mancha, located in the central plateau of the Iberian Peninsula, is the world’s largest vineyard. Varietal wines are made with one type of grape. Airen and Tempranillo are the most characteristic grapes from this area, while other non-native grape varieties sucha as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Viura, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay have excellent results due to the climate and terrain in this region.

  • Tasting Notes

    With a deep purple colour this wine has lots of fruity aromas, while ripe plum and damson fruit flavours combine on the palate for a smooth and gently spiced finish.

  • Technical Information

    Grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness level to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. The wine undergoes a period of cold maceration that usually takes from 3 to 4 days. Fermentation takes place under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks that never rise above 25°C.
