An expressive 2020 Garnacha, which is a reflection of Campo Viejo’s expertise in Rioja winemaking and commitment to pushing the boundaries. Despite Tempranillo's prevalence in the region, this 100% Garnacha testifies to Rioja's diversity. Sourced mainly in Rioja Oriental where Garnacha thrives, the wine spends 4 months in new French oak barrels, helping us to achieve a balance between the natural fruitiness and juiciness of Garnacha with some structure and complexity. A versatile, easy-drinking red, which can be enjoyed slightly chilled, at room temperature, or paired with grilled vegetables, lasagne, pizza, frittata, charcuterie. The perfect wine for any occasion - from everyday get-togethers to celebratory dinners.
Tasting Notes: A fruit-driven Garnacha with an intense nose and silky palate.
The grapes in this wine are fermented in vats at a controlled temperature of around 25ºC. Maceration with skins takes place for approximately 12 days in order to deliver the colour of the wine. The wine then spends 4 months in French oak barrels before rounding off its ageing in the bottle.
