D.O. Valdepeñas / Viña Albali
Viña Albali Gran 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 Spanish people. He named it Albali after the brightest star in Aquarius. Viña Albali Gran Reserva is created using handpicked Tempranillo grapes from the best vines in our own vineyards. This wine ages for a long period in the quietness of our cellars.
Between 18-20° C. We recommend opening at least half hour before serving or decanting.
Deep ruby-red in colour with amber tones. This wine has got a complex and elegant aroma of red fruits and hints of leather, green pepper and spices. On the palate it is well balanced and expressive, with rounded and polished tannins. The wine has good storage potential due to its excellent tannic structure.
It is the ideal accompaniment for any type of meat, stews and mature cheeses.
The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26-28 °C. The entire process is designed to obtain the maximum fruit expression and pleasant, polished tannins. The wine is aged in the barrel for at least 18 months, followed by another period of 3 to 6 years in the bottle.
