This Spanish red wine is a pure variety wine from the grape Trempranillo.
The brilliant red colour of the Castillo de Clavijo Tempranillo Tinto Rioja DOCa by Criadores de Rioja is reminiscent of a sparkling ruby. In the nose, aromas of wild blackberries are complemented by subtle vanilla and wood notes of barrique development. On the palate, this red wine looks soft and juicy fresh, with well-integrated woody nuances, lots of fruity impressions as well as spicy and balsamic notes. This red wine stands for the beautiful balance between dominant fruit and short barrique storage.
Vinification of the Castillo de Clavijo Tempranillo
The hand-harvested harvested material from the Criadores de Rioja winery is destemmed, ground, mashed and the resulting mash is fermented in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. The fermented wine finally matures for 6 months in French and American oak barrels before being bottled.
