Product Description
Details

This Spanish red wine produced by Bodega Otto Bestué is made from grapes coming from a single estate, Finca Rableros, which gives the wine its name.

It is made from a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, grown at 350 metres above sea level.

After the harvest, the grapes were destemmed, fermented and macerated with the skins for 20 days. Then this Crianza red wine from Somontano was aged for 7 months in American oak barrels.

Finally, Bestué Finca Rableros 2017 was filtered, stabilized and clarified.

Value
This Somontano red offers a good alternative to the higher-priced Riberas produced from the same combination of grapes. This is mildly spicy, with a suave palate and a nice finish.
