Characteristics of Atteca Armas

Atteca Armas is a red wine produced by Bodega Ateca in Calatayud.

Bodega Ateca
belongs to Juan Gil Bodegas Familiares group, responsible for the development in various denominations for producing well-known wines such as Juan Gil, Clio and La Atalaya.

Atteca Armas is a varietal made from Garnacha. The grapes come from a small plot of 2.5 hectares of old vines more than 100 years old, with a very low yield, which produce very concentrated grapes. They have great aroma and flavour.

The soils consist of rock, gravel and clay slate, and are exposed to a continental climate with strong contrasts in temperature. Cold winters and hot summers.

After a rigorous selection, the grape are macerated before fermentation, which occurs in small stainless steel tanks.

Atteca Armas undergoes an 18-month aging in French oak barrels. Atteca Armas is a wine from Calatayud with character, with much colour, rich aromas and a powerful, tasty and very fruity palate.

Possibly one of the best wines from this appellation. There is a very limited production of 3,600 bottles due to the small size of the farm from which the grapes come and the rigorous selection process.

Alcohol: 16.0ºC

Tasting notes Atteca Armas

Sight Deep cherry red. Nose Intense and attractive nose. Ripe fruit, roasted and spicy notes from the barrel with a mineral taste from the slate soil where the vine grows. Taste The taste is a complex, fruity, powerful and elegant. Well-bodied but soft at the same time, very sweet. A great presence of fruit. Very marked tannins.
Sight Intense dark cherry colour. Bright. Dense tear with a good flow. Nose It is very attractive, intense and full in the nose. Initially, it leaves lots of ripe fruit notes. When swirling the glass, its fruity power appears with touches of spicy and toasted provided by the good quality oak during its ageing. Finally it releases some mineral hints provided by the slate. Taste Tasty, fruity and elegant. A very comprehensive and powerful red wine, with a silky and fresh palate. Lots of souvenirs of the fruit. Very long finish.
Sight Deep cherry color. Nose Rich aromas of ripe red fruit (raspberry, plum), with spicy notes (vanilla, licorice, cocoa) from the aging in barrels. Taste In Step by mouth is full and noble, fresh and crisp with good structure and memories of the fruity aromas.
