Dark, fruity, rustic, full-body red
Region: Spain> La Mancha> Mentrida.
Notes: Estate bottled. New oak barrel aging.
Dark, rich, dry with dark cherry, dry and stewed fruits, vanilla and spices. Approachable, quaffable and full of rustic charms. Smooth texture and silky tannins. In short, this is a type of wines you would be served at a casual tapas bar in Madrid, Spain. In fact, Bodegas Villarta is located in the slope of Gredos mountain range just a half hour away from the city. After a month long fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is matured in new Allier (impressive) French oak and American oak barrels for two months, and additional 8 months in the bottle.
Food pairing: very versatile. Charcuterie, any red meats, rustic dishes, hard cheese.
