The intense red colour of Miguel Torres' Gran Corona is similar to that of a ruby red brick. This Spanish red wine is made from the Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and Tempranillo (15%) grape varieties.
Aromatically complex, this red wine fills the nose with aromas of dark fruits (sour cherries, wild berries), spicy notes (black pepper, cloves) and hints of herbs and undergrowth. Gentle and full-bodied, with ripe fruit and delicate, slightly earthy spice as well as clearly structured, silky integrated tannins, this Spanish wine pampers the palate. Finally, this red wine provides a complex, strong, aromatic, concentrated and round feeling, followed by a long, supple and elegant finish.
Vinification of Miguel Torres Gran Coronas
First the Tempranillo grapes are harvested. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are then harvested. The grapes are crushed in the winery and fermented for 7-8 days at 28-29 °C in stainless steel tanks. The ageing takes place for twelve months in French oak barrels. This wine continues to rest in the bottle for some time.
