D.O. Valdepeñas / Viña Albali
Viña Albali Reserva
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 the Spanish people. He named it Albali after the brightest star in Aquarius.
Viña Albali Reserva is made from a selection of only the best Tempranillo grapes chosen from old vineyards with a small production. Having spent time ageing in oak barrels this variety produces wines with intense ruby red fruit aromas and hints of vanilla and spices.
Ideally, it should be served at around 16-17° C
Intense cherry red. This wine exhibits a complex aroma of vanilla, chocolate, spices and fruit jam. Pleasing and soft palate with a good tannic expression and long smooth finish.
Versatile wine that goes perfectly with grilled meat and Manchego cheese.
Its expressive tannic components are optimised thanks to a gentle maceration and pumping over for several short periods. After fermenting at a controlled temperature to extract its maximum aromatic potential and elegant tannins, the wine ages in American oak barrels for 12 months. Then, the ageing process continues in the bottle for a period of 2 to 3 years.
