Garnacha de Fuego
After the perfectly ripe grapes were hand harvested, they went through another careful selection at the sorting tables in the winery. The wine aged 10 months in American and French oak.
This wine of dark ruby color improves with aerating. Lovely ripe dark fruit with blueberry tones and spices. Rich, almost sweet flavors of layered fruit is beautifully composed and balanced. Long satisfying finish.
This wine can be enjoyed right now but will improve with 1-2 years in the bottle. This wine can proudly compete with rich red wines from Rhone or California, in much higher price category. Atteca is an excellent value!
