Alcohol content: 13.5%.
100% Organic production.
Own vineyards, certificate of organic production comprising both growing and vinification procedures.
Deep cherry red with a good density, violet hues and a purple rim. Clean and bright to the eye. Swirling agitation yields thick legs as indicators of alcohol and glycerine.
Displays very deep and clean aromas. Richly fruity notes.
Balsamic entrance that recalls laurel forests and then passes on to red fruit like strawberry, raspberry and ripe blackberries, which all together give this wine a gourmet and very pleasant sweet touch. Underlying notes of licorice that are very characteristic of the Tempranillo grape variety.
Soft and somewhat sweet entrance in the mouth, where it quickly displays its youthful vigor with a powerful, but not aggressive tannin. Meaty with a good tannic, but well-balanced and compensated acidity that provides the wine with liveliness and freshness. Very pleasant and persistent on the palate while presenting abundant retronasal aromas of sweet fruit.
Well-crafted and balanced young wine that is an excellent match for appetizers like cured ham, hard cheeses and blue cheeses. Pairs ideally with different dishes like fish, red and white meats, roasts, rice dishes, tortillas and mushrooms. Particularly appropriate to go with spicy food.
Can also be served on its own or in good company.
