The Spanish DO La Mancha region is home to the elegant Tempranillo di Altozano grape variety.
In the glass, this wine shines in a dense purple with violet reflections. The nose enjoys typical grape aromas of the Tempranillo grape - dark berry fruit combines with hints of liquorice and spicy nuances of coffee and vanilla. On the palate, this Spanish red wine is initially gentle - with each subsequent sip, a wonderfully powerful texture develops. The elegantly integrated tannin structure harmonizes perfectly with the sweetly ripened fruit fullness, which is accompanied by a hint of spice. The reverberation delights with a pleasant length.
Vinification of the Trempanillo of Altozano
In the cool hours of the night, the grapes for this red wine are harvested and immediately brought to the winery of Finca Constancia. There, the harvested material is first cold mashed in for 5 days. As a result, first aromas and color pigments are extracted from the berry circuits. Thereafter, temperature-controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Only after biological acid degradation and complete alcoholic fermentation does this wine rest for a total of 3 months in French and American oak barrels.
Food recommendation for the Altozano Tempranillo This dry red wine from Spain is an excellent accompaniment
to fresh fish from the grill - such as salmon and tuna - pasta dishes in spicy sauce or with Mediterranean oven dishes.
