Availability: In stock
Produced by Bodega Tesalia in Arcos de la Frontera, a village belonging to the designation VT Cádiz, Iceni is made from vines located on the foothills of Sierra de Grazalema, a privileged area which receives the cooling influence of both the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
A blend of Syrah and Tintilla de Rota, the grapes were picked by hand.
Once in the cellar, the two varieties of this Spanish red wine were separately vinified in stainless steel tanks. After that, Iceni 2020 was aged for 5 months in French oak barrels.
This is versatile, youthful red wine from Cádiz.
The wine Iceni is cherry red, with some purplish glints.
This blend of Syrah and Tintilla de Rota smells primarily of black fruit (blackcurrants, blackberries), with some remembrances of bitter herbs, a spicy note and a dim flinty note coming from the limestone soils.
This wine from Bodega Tesalia is quite characteristic. Full of yummy ripe fruit, with a crisp, mineral edge and a balsamic, resin-like note. Fresh, delicious finish.
