A single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon, Viñas del Vero Colección Cabernet Sauvignon is a Spanish red wine produced from vines around 30 years of age coming from a single estate, Pago Los Sasos, located at an altitude around 400 metres in the northern Spanish region of Somontano.
The soils are mainly composed of sand and limestone. The region is swept by a harsh northern wind, the Cierzo, that operates as a natural sanitizing agent.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then they were aged for 10 months in French oak barrels from Allier.
Finally, Viñas del Vero Colección Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 by Viñas del Vero was filtered and clarified before its bottling.
The red wine Viñas del Vero Colección Cabernet Sauvignon has a clean, bright garnet colour with a violet rim.
Well-defined and suggestive, this red wine by Viñas del Vero Somontano smells of ripe black fruit, with a note of green beel pepper, some lactic touches and notes of liquorice, spices and underbush.
Mature and well-balanced, this Cabernet from Somontano has a solid structure, some slightly rugged tannins and a very good acidity. Viñas del Vero Cabernet Pago Los Sasos suggests some notes of toast, vegetables, black fruit, balsam and earth. Long, spicy finish.
