When oak comes into play Cencibel moderates its fruity impulse to give way to the complexity of ageing in oak. In the winery a red wine comes out of the barrels with a dark cherry red colour and an orangish rim, evidence of the ageing process. With aromas of fruit and ageing in harmony, which also appear on the palate.

Winemaking

Produced from Tempranillo grapes from vines of more than 30 years of age. From 15 to 20 days of controlled fermentation at 22-24°C plus 6 months aging equally in brand new French and American oak casks to boost the Tempranillo aromas.

Tasting notes

Dark cherry red with ruby-colour hues. Excellent aromatic flavour, rich in red-fruit aromas with spicy woody and toasty notes. Sweet mouth-feel, with fruity, tasty and expressive tannins.

Serving Notes

Best served at 12-16°C with red meat, poultry, lamb, pork or beef roast, wildfowl and cheese.
