D.O. Somontano (Aragón)
Viñas del Vero Gran Vos is a red wine from Somontano prepared by Viñas del Vero, a winery founded in 1986 by acquiring 550 hectares of land in Barbastro and other nearby towns. The first wines hit the market in 1990.
The climate in this area is perfect for making excellent wines as it offers superb growing conditions. It is characterized by extreme winters and short summers, with an average annual temperature of 12 ° C and an annual rainfall of 600 mm. This wine is made from a selection of the best grapes from vineyards such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and other red varieties. The vineyards are planted on permeable limestone soils. As for the process, a traditional vinification is performed of each variety separately. After fermentation, the wine spends 18 months in new French oak barrels from Allier. We recommend decanting half hour before enjoying it.
The palate is broad with great volume. This is a fleshy, tasty, velvety and powerful wine. Fruity notes appear alongside roasted, very well balanced. Excellent acidity and tannins. Long and very persistent.
Cherry colour with garnet reflections.
The nose is cleanly presented with a medium-high aromatic intensity that is marked with fruity aromas, toasted notes and balsamic. We can also see cocoa, toffee and liquorice. Subtle herbal and mineral background.
