Inspired by the clear, starry night sky, Félix Solís wanted to create a wine that would capture the pleasure-loving, life-affirming spirit of the Spanish people. He named it Albali after a star in the constellation of Aquarius.
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.
A well-structured wine with a balance of red and black fruit with hints of pepper, typical of the variety. It has great complexity and a long balanced finish.
Goes well with roast vegetables, pork dishes, rice dishes, stew or roast lamb.
Serve between 12 and 14ºC.
Grapes are carefully selected and gently crushed. The juice and berries are transferred to temperature controlled tanks for fermentation, where colour and flavour from the grapes is gently extracted through pumping the released juice back over the grapes.
