This Volcán Tempranillo is a single varietal Spanish red wine produced in Calatayud.
The Tempranillo grapes come from a single estate, Viña Alarba, the oldest of the winery. The vines are planted in slopes with volcanic and slate soils, located at an altitude between 700 and 1100 above sea level. The resulting wine, which belongs to the series Las Pizarras Collection Volcán, is thus quite mineral.
After a manual harvest, the Bodegas y Viñedos del Jalón winery fermented the grapes in stainless steel tanks through the carbonic maceration process.

The red wine Volcán Tempranillo has a nice cherry colour with some violet tinges.
An intense, fruit-driven Tempranillo from Calatayud. Red and black fruit, creamy remembrances and a deep mineral note reminiscent of graphite.
Pleasant and gulpable, with some lively tannins nuanced by some creamy notes. Well balanced, this carbonic maceration red wine by Bodegas y Viñedos del Jalón has a long, nice finish.
