Dominio del Águila "Picaro Rose Clarete" 2015

  • Varieties: Mostly Tempranillo & a small amount of Albillo.

    Appearance: Bold fuchsia.

    Nose: Clean, with pronounced notes of dark berries and some toast.

    Palate: Dry and full-bodied, with a pronounced creamy texture and some tannic grip.

    Vinification: Jorge farms 30 hectares of vines organically with ongoing experiments with biodynamics. Grapes here are over 50 years old and stomped by foot. Co-fermentation of red and white varieties macerated for a few days before being racked into barrels for fermentation and aging. After pressing the blend, it's racked into barrels for natural yeast fermentation (whole-cluster) during 10 months and the rest of the aging, without any racking. 20 months in french oak barrels.

    Recommended Food Pairing: Perfect with brisket tacos, pasta dishes in a rich cream sauce, or spicy jerk-chicken.
