It surprises with its high load of fruit aromas in a mid palate marked by a silky sensation, an integrated refreshing acidity and a ripe tannin sensation.
A red wine highly recommendable because of its price, its honesty and its appeal.
For centuries red wine from Cariñena was characterized by high alcohol contents, intense colours and great strength. These wines were made for French and Spanish exporters, who used it for blending with other wines from other latitudes, which were much lighter, thinner and fragile. However in recent years, the area has been carefully working with the traditional Grenache grapes, as well as recovering back the Cariñena variety (also known as Mazuelo), shaking off overly alcoholic wines to join the world of good quality wines. The future of this region is much more promising than its past.
