The nose expresses aromas of ripe, jammy fruit together with toasted nuances of cocoa and spice. A full bodied wine that has warm berried fruit on the palate, with depth and power from the oak ageing.
Casa del Valle in Castilla-La Mancha boasts an entirely new winery. The bodega is owned by a group of Riojan growers who between them have 3 decades of winemaking experience, strong financial backing and the most advanced modern technology. The bodega is surrounded by 100 hectares of vineyards growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, all chosen for their great suitability for ageing and their well-defined character.
The vines are grown in the Caliza Franco Arenosa soils of Castilla de la Mancha located around the village of Yepes, in the province of Toledo. They are trained using the Double Cordon Royat system and pruning is carried out by hand.
The grapes were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel then aged in French and American oak casks for six months.
A wonderful accompaniment to Boeuf Bourguignonne, venison, merguez sausages, steak au poivre and game dishes. Also great with mature Cheshire cheese.
