Vino de la Tierra de Castilla / Peñasol
Tempranillo grapes mature to their best under the sun and the chilly nights in “Valley of the Rocks” (Valle de las Peñas).
Best served cold between 8-12º C
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 pink with aromas of fresh and red fruits. Light and balance on the palate with a fresh and fruity character.
Ideal with seafood, fish dishes and vegetable soups.
Grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness level to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. First, the must undergoes cold maceration for 8 to 10 hours. This period allows for the characteristic rosé colour to be transferred. Then, fermentation takes place at 16-18 º C for up to 10-12 days, resulting in a light, clean and fruity wine.
