Real Compania Tempranillo 2016

Overview

This Tempranillo has an intense cherry red color with violet hints that define its youth. Its aroma is very fruity, with red berries, violets, and a little black liquorice. The strong aromas follow through to the palate, which is well-rounded with good structure and lingering fruit that continues through the long and pleasant finish.






 

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from selected vineyards in several high-altitude locations in Castile, South-Central Spain. The clay-limestone soils are ideal for growing grapes. The climate is continental-Mediterranean, with cold winters and hot summers. During the summer, there is great contrast between the day and night temperatures, which help the grapes reach optimum ripeness. The grapes are hand-picked and sorted. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 12 days with daily pump-over in order to achieve the best color, aroma and tannin extraction. Malolactic fermentation takes place in the stainless steel and is followed by light fining and filtration just prior to bottling, in an effort to preserve as much of the wine’s fine fruit aromas as possible. The wine remains 2 months in the bottle prior to release.


Serving Hints
This wine is ideally served at room temperature to accompany paella and other rice casserole dishes, pastas, red and white meats. It is ideal for Spanish-style “tapas” and appetizers.
