D.O. Valdepeñas / Viña Albali
Viña Albali Roble
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.
Viña Albali Roble completes the range with a young wine, with a brief aging in an American oak barrel that provide aromas and toasted flavors.
Serve between 15 and 18 ºC
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.
Tempranillo with a pleasant character of intense red berry aromas combined with liquorice and sweet notes of vanilla. A tasty, powerful wine with a long, persistent finish.
Thanks to its organoleptic diversity this wine complements a wide variet.
The grapes come from middle-aged vines that are harvested manually. The pickling is done without squeezing and the fermentations are made at cool temperatures to enhance the aromas of the variety. The wine remains in American oak barrels of various toasted wines for 3 months until the malolactic fermentation is completed.
