Vino de la Tierra de Castilla / Consigna
Consigna Cabernet Sauvignon
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown under the cold winters and very hot summers that characterise the extreme continental climate of this region.
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.
Intense dark red in colour with pleasant aromas of black and red fruits and green pepper. On the palate this wine has good tannin and structure; this is a pleasant, dense and full-bodied wine with a long balanced finish.
This wine is a perfect accompaniment to roast vegetables, pork dishes, rice dishes, stew or roast lamb.
Grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness level to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. Then, the grapes undergo a cold maceration period for 2 or 3 days. Fermentation takes place at in stainless steel tanks for 15-17 days at 14-16°C. The process is then completed by a short ageing period on lees that result in an elegant, well-structured wine that is designed to be consumed young.
