Red Wine Corral de Campanas 2018
Availability: In stock
Made by the Quinta de la Quietud winery, Corral de Campanas is sourced from the youngest estate-owned Tinta de Toro vineyards. They are located in the town of Toro, at the heart of the Designation of Origin that bears the same name.
The plants grow in very poor soils at an altitude over 700 metres above sea level.
Harvested by hand at dawn, first the grapes of this Spanish red wine were destemmed and crushed. Then they were cold-soaked for 2 days, fermented under controlled temperature and macerated for 2 weeks.
After that, half of Corral de Campanas 2018 was aged in 90% American and 10% French oak barrels - 30% new - for 12 months. The other half was microoxygenated in vats.
Aerate this organic red wine 30 minutes before drinking.
Pair this Crianza red wine with meat recipes.
The wine Corral de Campanas is deep ruby with a violet hue.
Quite lively, with prominent notes of bilberries and cranberries. This Tinta de Toro red wine also suggests milky candies, cocoa, toast, exotic spices and Tahitian vanilla.
This wine from Quinta de la Quietud has a lively acidity and round, sweet tannins. Berryish and structured, the wine is certainly fresher than one might think. Finish is long and clean, with a pleasant, spicy aftertaste.
