Tempranillo is the Spanish grape variety par excellence and it is grown widely throughout the region. The quality of the wines produced from this grape is well known, as much for the young wines as the older oak aged wines.
Like France’s Vins de Pays, Vino de la Tierra de Castilla is a Spanish geographic indicator for wines from the autonomous region of Castilla-La Mancha. This is a region at an altitude of 700m covered with limestone and argillaceous soils that endure scarce rain falls.
Colour: Deep red with purple tones. On the nose: Aromas of red and black berries, with a hint of violet. On the palate: Concentred black fruits flavours with a perfect balance of fruit and tannins rounded off with a touch of toasted oak.
A perfect accompaniment to meat or game dishes (deer or venison) or paté.
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 wine undergoes a period of maceration that lasts for 3 to 4 days. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature that does not rise above 25 ºC for up to 10 days in order to retain the optimum balance of tannins and fruit.
