This is a mature wine from Valdepenas which shows the characteristic strawberry fruit of Tempranillo and softness from extended ageing. Grapes from 30-year-old vines were treated to a slow fermentation before seven years of maturation (including two in oak).
Valdepenas DO (Denominación de Origen) is located in the south of Castila La Mancha in central Spain. Valdepenas translates as Valley of Rocks and takes it name from the ancient Spanish city in the same area. It’s no surprise therefore that it has a semi-arid climate with searing heat in summer contrasted by extremely cold winters.
