Red Wine Flores de Callejo 2021
Availability: In stock
Made solely from Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grapes, Flores de Callejo is the entry-level Spanish red wine from Bodegas Félix Callejo, a quality-oriented winery based in DO Ribera del Duero.
The grapes come from two parcels 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 subsequently macerated for 3 days. Then this red wine from Ribera del Duero went through a spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
Finally, Flores de Callejo 2021 was partially aged for 5 months in French oak barrels and in stainless steel tanks.
170,000 bottles produced.
The red wine Flores de Callejo is deep ruby with a violet rim.
This varietal Tinto Fino is fruit-forward, with aromas of strawberries, raspberries, cherries and redcurrants, alongside nuances of flowers, vanilla, pepper and toast.
Lively and fresh, this red wine from Bodegas Félix Callejo has a good acidity and mild tannins. Liquorice, blackcurrants and violets, leaving a gently dry, persistent balsamic finish.
