This delicious red blend pours into a dark ruby red color. It greets your nose with aromas of black fruits with cocoa butter. On the palate, it is ripe and juicy, fruity with notes of black cherry, cassis and a hint of spice with a smooth finish.
Prieto Picudo is a widely planted grape in Northern Spain and is often blended with other varietals. Prieto in Spanish means ‘dark color’, here making reference to the color the gape adds to a wine, Picudo refers to the pointy shape of the compact bunches.
Fermentation takes about 7 days and the grape skin is left with the musts during that process; the maximum temperature will be between 25 and 26º Centigrade. The wine is then aged for 4 months in 225 liter French Oak barrels.
Pairs well with beef, pasta, veal, and poultry dishes.
