This wine was inspired by the clear starry night skies in La Mancha. Félix Solís wanted to create a wine that would capture the pleasure-loving, life-affirming spirit of Spanish people. He named it Albali after the brightest star in Aquarius.
Valdepeñas takes its name from the ancient city by the same name, that lies on a sun-baked river valley dotted by small rocky formations (Val-de-peñas - Valley of Rocks). Located in the South of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. The area is almost entirely encircled by both La Mancha Denominación de Origen on the North border and Andalusia on its Southern limits. It experiences extreme weather conditions, with temperatures reaching up to over 40 ºC in the summer and dropping to as low as -10 ºC in the winter. The future of this Denominación de Origen lays with its red wines made from Tempranillo; a grape variety that enjoys the ability to age well as crianza, reserva and gran reserva.
Pale lemon yellow. A clean, fresh and fruity nose with a touch of herby aromas. A good balance between sweetness and acidity and a predominance of citrus flavours.
Ideal with fish and seafood dishes especially sardines and prawns, salads and even sweet desserts.
Chilled (7- 9ºC)
The best grapes are selected to produce a sweeter wine. Modern wine making techniques are employed to produce a delicate wine whose fermentation is stopped by cooling at the optimum moment.
