5 Red wines to enjoy in the spring

Spring is here! A time for flowers and fresh fruits. Lazy afternoons, walks ouside and quality time with people who matter. As always, if possible, accompanied by a glass of wine.

Longer days and mild temperature increases, the omen of the hot summer, often invite us to leave more structured and heavier wines, instead turning towards fresher and easy to drink red wines. So we thought  we would bring you Decántalo’s proposal for red wines to enjoy in spring, we are sure you will love them. Don’t miss them!

When we think of spring, our imagination automatically focuses on fresh berries, blooming meadows, the feeling of lightness, softness, sunlight … So we have chosen five wines with a similar profile.

These five wines withspring profile, so to speak, are defined as agile and easy drinking wines, full of fresh red fruit and attractive floral notes  to captivate you. Take note of the following:

Gaba do Xil Mencía 2012. From the Galician Valdeorras comes this 100% Mencia which will delight lovers of this variety. Strawberries and raspberries accompany geraniums,  typical of Mencia. Remarkable freshness and minerality a most competitive price.

Bastión de la Luna 2013. We don’t leave Galicia with this wine, but we do travel to the Rías Baixas to highlight the Forjas de Salnes winery. This Bastion de la Luna 2013 is a superb blend of Mencia, Loureiro, Caíño and Espadeiro, it is fluid and very fresh, full of red fruit, minerality and a noble rusticity, with a 100% Atlantic character.

7 Fuentes 2013. We travel now to the Canary Islands to present this interesting blend of Listán Negro and Tinta del País varieties, from the Suertes del Marqués winery. 7 Fuentes is clear and sharp, full of fine fresh fruit, earth, ash and some floral notes. A very special vinazo. Nice, light and full of personality.

Luberri Maceración Carbónica 2014. When we look at fresh, light and fruity wines, it seems almost impossible not to highlight some of the fantastic wines produced in Rioja by carbonic maceration. On this occasion,  Luberri Maceracion Carbonica 2014 has been chosen. A bomb of fruit, crisp, light and greedy. Ready to drink right now!

Finca La Emperatriz Garnacha 2011. Spring takes us to wild meadows with odours of rosemary, thyme and lavender… Aromas also found in Grenache. And this Finca La Emperatriz Garnacha 2011 is a great example of this variety. A single variety from very old vines with aromatic intensity. A very fragrant and fruity wine, but also creamy, elegant, complex and expressive.

Have you still not tried these recommendations? What do you expect? Try them!
