80% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha
Finca el Monte, vineyards aged more that 70 years old. Located at 650 meters altitude, in Tudelilla village boundary.
In the winery, the grape is destalked and slightly crushed. The fermentation temperatures are controlled up to 28-29ºC and the devatting is fast when it is perceived that the colour extraction has reached optimal levels.
Subsequently, the wine is put into the barrels, where it will remain during 14-16 months. The wine will be aged 70% of the time in new American oak barrels and 30% in “second-year” French barrels.
Intense red cherry color.
Aromas of red fruits, strawberry, raspberry and cranberry framed by fine nuances of spices, vanilla and toffe.
Well-balanced and full-bodied wine, with very round tannins. Silky and structured on the palate. It has a sweet and very enveloping attack with a long and pleasant aftertaste. Pleasant reminders of vanilla, spices and toffe.
Serving and Pairing Recommendations
