Diego de Almagro is born to conquer palates from all over the world. With the maximum respect to grapes, technology and expertise result in a modern style of wine, suitable for international tastes.
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. The future of this Denominación de Origen lays with its red wines made from Tempranillo; a grape variety that enjoys the ability to age well as crianza, reserva and gran reserva.
Brilliant, shining pink –red, very clean. The nose is intense and very inviting with aromas of cherries, and strawberry. The palate mirrors these aromas and is well balanced with a good structure, very refreshing and a medium-long finish.
A good companion to fish, seafood or gazpacho and salmorejo and soups.
Best served cold (10-12º C)
The strict controls on ripening are respected in order to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. The grapes, coming from 25-30 year-old vineyards, undergo cold controlled maceration which allows the skins to remain in contact with the must until the wine acquires its characteristic rosé colour. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature between 16-18 °C for 10 days, resulting in a light, clean and fruity wine.
