Product Description

Produced by Bodega Tesalia in the Andalusian town of Arcos de la Frontera, within the VT Cádiz designation, Tesalia Arx is made from vines located on the foothills of Sierra de Grazalema, in a privileged area which receives the cooling influence of both the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

The 2018 vintage of this Spanish red wine is made essentially from Syrah, complemented by Tintilla de Rota, and a little amount of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The grapes were picked up by hand at night. Once in the cellar, they were cold-macerated for 4 days in order to preserve the organoleptic compounds of the fruit. The alcoholic fermentation of this Crianza red wine went on for about 20 days. Each grape variety was fermented separately.

After that, Tesalia Arx 2018 was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels before being bottled.

Cheerful and intense, this red wine from Cádiz is an excellent value.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Tesalia Arx is medium purple with a violet rim.


Fruit-driven, this blend of Syrah, Tintilla de Rota, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon smells primarily of black fruit. As it is exposed to air, Tesalia Arx shows aromas of cocoa, vanilla and cedar. There is also a subtle background of bitter herbs.


Fresh and easygoing, this red wine of Bodega Tesalia has a lively palate and some smooth tannins. Juicy black fruit and a hint of cocoa, with a toasted note and a long, spicy finish.

Our personal opinion

The wine Tesalia Arx 2018 is a great choice for a BBQ with friends.
