Gota De Arena
The grapes of Tempranillo planted on sandy soils in the traditional “vaso” system were hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 15 days at temperatures below 27ºC/80ºF, a small proportion of the wine was aged for 12 months mainly in French oak barrels and also American oak.
The wine shows deep purple color, explosive in the nose featuring a mix of crushed red and black fruits, sweet spice-tinged with cedar. An incredible value, possessing fantastic fruit, excellent mid-palate depth, and ripe tannins.
Medium and long cured cheeses, pasta bakes, spicy sausage dishes, grilled steaks, roast chicken and roast duck, braised beef, and wintry casseroles.
