An accessible, but nevertheless interesting Spanish red wine. That is what Petit Hipperia is.
Produced by Pago de Vallegarcía, every vintage of this wine bears a different label. However, it always features the horse - the emblem of the winery - as the main motif.
After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were macerated for 3-4 days and separately vinified in stainless steel tanks with periodic punch-overs and pump-downs.
Subsequently, Petit Hipperia 2017 completed malolactic fermentation in oak barrels.
Finally, this Crianza red wine with the VT Castilla label was aged for 12 months in those same barrels.
18,300 bottles produced.
The wine Petit Hipperia has a clean, bright cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim and some violet tinges.
This red wine from Montes de Toledo exhibits some intense aromas of fruit, balsam and toast, underpinned by suggestions of terroir, undergrowth and liquorice.
Pleasant and mild, with a fresh acidity and some savoury tannins. Black fruit is the dominant note of this crianza red wine by Pago Vallegarcía, complemented with a dash of spices and balsam and some toasted and earthy remembrances. This red wine from Castilla has a long, complex finish.
