The best grapes from the vineyards of the “Valle de las Piedras” are ripened under the sunshine of this region of central Spain. The cultivation of the Merlot grape variety is widespread in this area, known for producing wines of great finesse and softness, while being aromatic and fleshy.
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.
The wine is deep red in colour. On the nose there are complex aromas of plum and black cherry. The palate is rich and well defined with soft tannins that enhance this elegant and well balanced wine.
This wine is perfect to accompany all types of dishes, such as legumes, nuts, roasted vegetables, meats, rice, stew, well seasoned stews, or grilled lamb, because of its rich aroma.
Best served between 15 and 18ºC.
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 cold maceration that usually lasts for 2 or 3 days. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks that never rises above 25°C.
