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.
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.
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.
