Peñasol Red takes its name from the place where it has been elaborated: the sunny Valley of the Rocks, the ancient name of Valdepeñas, by the river Jabalon’s banks. The wine is made from Tempranillo, the indigenous grape from Castilla-La Mancha.
The area of Castilla-La Mancha, located in the central plateau of the Iberian Peninsula, is the world’s largest vineyard. Varietal wines are made with one type of grape. Airen and Tempranillo are the most characteristic grapes from this area, while other non-native grape varieties sucha as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Viura, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay have excellent results due to the climate and terrain in this region.
This wine is characterised by its garnet red colour and its pleasant taste.
It can be enjoyed with all types of dishes, and particularly with meat, rice or pâté
Its optimum temperature range is between 14 and 16°C.
The grapes undergo strict controls on the vineyards to determine the correct moment to be harvested and transformed into a wine with the right amount of sugar and acidity. The must macerates in contact with skins for 2-3 days. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 22-24°C results in a perfect balance of fruit and tannins.
