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.
The wine is bright yellow in colour. On the nose are aromas of floral notes and pear and apple. The palate is well-balanced with subtle herbs and citric.
A perfect companion to steamed fish with vegetables, seafood, octopus, and cold and warm soups.
Best served chilled (7-9ºC)
The best grapes are selected for this wine. Techniques including cooled fermentation have led to the delicate and youthful, aromatic freshness of the wines being preserved. Before pressing, the must is macerated for 6-8 hours at low temperatures. The fermentation process then takes place at 14-16ºC in stainless steel tanks in order to obtain the maximum amount of freshness and aromas.
