Vino de la Tierra de Castilla / Peñasol
Tempranillo and Grenache grapes mature to their best under the sun and the chilly nights in “Valley of the Rocks” (Valle de las Peñas).
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 red colour with purple reflections. This is a wine with aromas of red berries, violet and concentrated black fruit. A tasty texture and rounded tannins.
A perfect accompaniment to meat, pâté or strong cheese.
The ripening process of the grapes is strictly controlled while on the fields to determine the optimum harvesting moment that yields grapes with a perfect balance of sugar content and acidity. Then, the grapes undergo a cold maceration period of 3 - 4 days. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks that never rises above 22-24oC for 10 days to achieve the perfect balance between tannins and fruit.
