Red Wine Pago de Carraovejas 2021
Availability: In stock
The Pago de Carraovejas winery presents the new vintage of its best-known wine, Pago de Carraovejas.
Virtually a varietal Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), nuanced with a 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot, this Spanish red wine is made from young vines, planted between 1998 and 2011, near the town of Peñafiel, in the heart of DO Ribera del Duero.
After a meticulous selection, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and French oak vats, after that the wine was aged for 12 months in 225 and 600-litre American and French oak barrels.
After that, Pago de Carraovejas 2021 was clarified with egg whites. It was bottled in the spring of 2023 and subsequently aged for some months in the bottle before its commercial release.
We recommend that you decant this red wine from Ribera del Duero for a minimum of 30 minutes before you drink it.
Pair this Crianza red wine with hearty meat dishes.
The red wine Pago de Carraovejas is deep purple with a violet rim.
Lush and opulent, this blend of Tinto Fino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot displays juicy aromas of red berries and black fruit, along with some lactic touches, notes of spices and toast, and some brush-strokes of menthol and balsam. In the background, there are subtle oaky remembrances and a pinch of dry undergrowth.
Textured, smooth and sophisticated, with flavours of mulberries and blackberries, a touch of balsam and spices, and some earthy and floral suggestions. Tannins are ripe and well integrated, and the finish of this wine of Pago de Carraovejas is long and yummy, with an aftertaste of fruit, toast and Asian spices.
