Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Tridente Tempranillo, a Spanish red wine marketed under the label VT de Castilla y León.

A single varietal Tempranillo, the grapes of this red wine from Castilla y León were harvested by hand at dusk to avoid excessive sunshine.

Then they were brought to the cellar, destemmed and macerated in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.

After that, Tridente Tempranillo 2016 by Bodegas Tritón was transferred into French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for a period of 15 months.

Appearance

The red wine Tridente Tempranillo has a clean, high, cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

This old-vines Tempranillo has an intense nose. Wild berries, some smoky notes, hints of balsam and liquorice, a dash of spices and some notions of dry earth.

Palate

A bold and powerful crianza red wine, with a substantial body and a smooth texture. Lively notes of black fruit and spices, gently sweet and enlivened by an extraordinary acidity. This red wine by Bodegas Tritón has a long, elegant finish reminiscent of cocoa, pepper and vanilla.

Our personal opinion

Produced by the Juan Gil group Tridente Tempranillo 2016 showcases the bolder side of this grape variety. Aerate 30 minutes before you drink it.
