Bright cherry red in colour, with complex aromas of wild berries and a very spicy touch. Its palate carries flavours of blueberries and currants, very silky and with a full body.
Ideal with roast suckling pig, pork or beef, herb pâté, creamy or cured cheese, Serrano ham, paella, etc.
A more intense maceration that the usual one for young wines, but also a delicate process that intends to obtain the sweet tannins with character as well as the floral aromas of red fruits that characterise Tempranillo grapes. Fermentation then takes places between 22 and 25 ºC. Once the alcoholic fermentation is over and in order to increase the sensation of volume and sweet tannins, it is transferred to American oak barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place for 2 to 3 months. Malolactic fermentation also take place to soften tannins.
