Details

Angosto Almendros 2012 is the top wine of the El Angosto winery.

Produced in Valencia, the wine is made from a highly original blend of 34% Marselan, 33% Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) and 33% Syrah.

The little-known Marselan, incidentally, is a cross of Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon developed by the French INRA (Institute of Agricultural Research) in the 1960s.

Meticulously vinified, the wine was aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.

Drink now until 2022+.

Decant 30 minutes before drinking.

This wine has a very limited production.

 

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

 

Nose

Expressive notes of black fruit, sweet spices, remembrances of cedar and balsam, subtle hints of Mediterranean undergrowth and a dash of Havanna cigars, cocoa, lavender and toast.

 

Palate

Complex and moreish, with a solid structure, good grip and some crisp, lively tannins. Red fruit, some mineral undertones, a dash of herbs and spices and some floral remembrances. Very good acidity and long finish.

 

Our personal opinion

Angosto Almendros 2012 is surprisingly rich and subtle. A very good wine from sunny Valencia.
