Red Wine La Tribuna 2018
Availability: In stock
Bodega El Angosto presents La Tribuna, a young, uncomplicated Spanish red wine which substitutes the well-known La Tribu.
Harvested both mechanically and manually, this wine from the DO Valencia was macerated at a low temperature, fermented in stainless steel tanks, and aged in 225 and 500-litre French oak barrels. After that, it was further aged for a short period of time in 7,000-litre oak vats. Finally, La Tribuna 2018 was fined and aged for a two further months in the bottle.
This savoury wine from Valencia is full of Mediterranean character.
The red wine La Tribuna has an intense ruby colour with some violet tinges.
Lively and expressive, the wine La Tribuna smells of red fruit and violets. The brief ageing period shows in some dim spicy and toasted notes.
Fresh, smooth and substantial, this wine of the Angosto winery has some smooth tannins and a good acidity. Red berries, spices and a touch licorice lead to a long, fruity finish.
