Red Wine Flores de Callejo 2020

The grapes come from two plots located in the basin of the Duero river, at altitudes between 850 and 930 metres above sea level. Composition of the soils varies greatly, including limestone, clay, sand and pebble stones.
The grapes were selected both in the vineyard and in the cellar. After being destemmed, they were cold-soaked, fermented in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts and, once finished, subsequently macerated for 3 days.
Then this Spanish red wine produced by Bodegas Félix Callejo underwent a spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
Finally, Flores de Callejo 2020 was partially aged for 5 months in French oak barrels and in stainless steel tanks.
The production of this red wine from Ribera del Duero totalized 170,000 bottles.
The red wine Flores de Callejo is high ruby with a violet rim.
This varietal Tinto Fino is fruit-driven. Intense aromas of strawberries, raspberries, cherries and redcurrants, along with nuances of flowers, vanilla, pepper and toast.
Lively and fresh, this red wine from Bodegas Félix Callejo shows a nice balanace between the fruit and the wooden notes. Wild berries, violets, liquorice and dry earth. Good acidity and mild tannins. Slightly dry, long, balsamic finish.
