Area

D. O. Tierra del Vino de Zamora

Tasting Note

With a shy, suggestive and especially complex aromatic profile. Black fruit accompanied by an interesting minerality, along with subtle notes of sweet and creamy spices provided by the aging. In the mouth it is silky and with a final tension that keeps it in the mouth for a long time. Wine of many nuances.

Food Pairing

White and red meats, stews, pulses, risotto-type rice dishes, semi-cured and Zamora or Manchego-type cured cheese, cured ham, salchichon, mushrooms and morcilla.

Ageing

14 months in French oak barrels (60% new barrique)
