"A wine that over-delivers in just about every vintage, the 2016 Tres Picos is always 100% Garnacha from red/iron-laced soils, destemmed and brought up in French oak barrels. Raspberries, spice, dried flowers and potpourri notes all emerge from this juicy, front end-loaded, absolutely delicious red that has a touch of vanilla, medium to full-bodied richness, and a great finish. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years." (JD)

Winery Notes:
Characteristics of the vineyard: Mountain vineyards with an age of 35 to 60 years situated at an altitude of 600-700 meters, on stony, slimy soils with clay and limestone.

Elaboration:
Maceration during 20-25 days in total. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of between 25º-30º C. The wine is submitted to an aging of 5 months in new bordelaise barrels of French oak.

Tasting notes:
Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin.
