The great plain of La Mancha, to the south of Madrid and east of Toledo, is the largest viticultural area of Spain, and as such represents some banging value with the good producers. The climate is dry and extreme in both summer and winter, with grapes avoiding overheating by constant strong winds.
This is an excellent value big, juicy and brash blend of Tempranillo and the lesser seen Petit Verdot. Black fruits and dark floral smells mingle with a little spice and decent structure. Awesome for a BBQ or with roasted peppers or pan con tomate.
