One of the rare young reds from Valdepeñas that best express the Cencibel varietal. A wine which smells of grapevines and mature sun ripened fruit. A dark red cherry colour with a violet border, clean and bright due to its excellent elaboration. Meaty and flavourful, all the taste of pure Cencibel, without the addition of a small percentage of white grapes, a Manchegan tradition.

Winemaking

Produced with Tempranillo grapes from vines of more than 30 years of age. The vines are hand-harvested vineyard by vineyard at the optimum moment of ripeness so that the wine can be vinified separately into distinct parcels of individual character.

Tasting notes

Dark cherry colour with lilaceous tones. Elegant flavours, rich in red-fruit aromas (raspberries and blackberries) with creamy tones and fine lilies. Powerful yet pleasant fruity palate.

Serving advice

Serving advice: Best served at 12-16ºC. We recommend serving with red meat, poultry, roasted lamb, pork, beef, hunting meat, stews, rice, mushrooms and cheese.
