Availability: In stock
Sourced from low-yielding vines, the grapes were gently destemmed and transferred into 225-litre French oak barrels. Then this Spanish red wine was fermented for 14 days, with 4-5 daily punch-downs and pump-overs.
After that, the red wine Viuda Negra Nunca Jamás 2020 completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for some months in those same barrels.
This is an uncomplicated, yummy Crianza red wine.
The red wine Viuda Negra Nunca Jamás is deep ruby with some violet and bluish tinges.
This varietal Tempranillo is quite expressive. Blueberries and damson, underscored by dim notes of liquorice, tree bark, spcies and toast.
Bursting with life, this wine of bodega Javier San Pedro Ortega has some round tannins and a lively acidity. Long and extremely pleasant, with a fruity and spicy aftertaste.
