Montefrio Tempranillo is an ideal wine to enjoy with an immense range of Spanish gastronomy.
In the former kingdom of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain, we can find the largest vine-growing area in the world with an endless expanse of 300,000 hectares of vineyard. It is also the stomping ground of Miguel de Cervantes’s famous novel, Don Quixote. The huge area covered by this Denominación de Origen borders Valencia and Murcia to the East, and Extremadura to the West, Andalusia to the South and Madrid to the North-West. Wine making began here in Roman times and was widespread during the middle ages. The versatility of this land has allowed for the introduction of a wide variety of international varieties of grape.
Deep red in colour with luscious red berry aromas, rich on the palate with a hint of pepper, spice and mocha. Warm and balanced with a lovely long finish.
Perfect with red meat, pasta, chilli con carne and mature cheese.
Between 12-14 ºC.
The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked. Before fermentation, the grapes are macerated in an inert atmosphere and at low temperatures. Fermentation takes place at 22ºC to preserve the original aromas and flavours.
