We use only Tempranillo to make this exotic rose barrel fermented. This grape is very resistant against oxidation and the colour remains bright for some years.
Visual: Especially bright and clean strawberry red with pink tones
Aromas: Complex and unusual aromas include red fruits like strawberry, raspberry and cherry, medicinal and smoky notes as well as spices, in harmony with more delicate vanilla and toasted notes obtained by fermentation in American oak.
Taste: Rich texture, is rounded, with excellent acidity, structure and flavor leaving a long finish. All these qualities will improve with a period of bottle-ageing.
Serving suggestions: Drink with rice dishes such as paella and risotto, with fresh pasta, pizzas or Indian or Asian dishes.It also combines perfectly with white meats like chicken or turkey,smoked meat,sushi and fish dishes.
Temperature of consumption: 8ºC
