The wine Guerinda Navasentero 2014 takes its name from the Navasentero estate, located in the region of Navarre.
This is a quite special Spanish red wine, as it is crafted solely from Graciano, an indigenous Spanish grape that has been being used for many years in traditional Rioja blends because of its high acidity.
Crafted by the Máximo Abete winery, the grapes were harvested by hand and carefully selected.
This Guerinda Navasentero 3+1 shows the capacity of the Graciano grape to produce interesting, single varietal red wines.
Drink until 2020.
The red wine Guerinda Navasentero has a very bright, clean, high purple-coloured robe with a crimson rim.
Intense notes of ripe red and black fruit, alongside some floral remembrances, notions of liquorice and a distinctive balsamic character. On the background of this varietal Graciano by Máximo Abete, we perceive some notes of cocoa, leather, fine wood and sweet spices.
Fresh and well-balanced, this red wine from Navarra is defined by red berries, mineral undertones and some balsamic remembrances. The wine has a tense acidity, some ripe, smooth tannins, and a long, delicately toasted finish.
