A little something easier this week for everyone to enjoy. Or should we say 'a Grande something'. This has to be one of the most glug-able and social wines we have in the store for so many reasons. At this price point in Spain you would usually be looking at a fairly mass marketed assemblage of sources, but for this it's all sourced from a single set of family run vineyards, all managed using sustainable farming practices. The juice is aged in concrete tanks that helps show off the deep fruit, and allows the wine to show well without much filtration to provide a richer than usual texture. All of this falls in a wine that is NOT the usual big and boozy style that many warm climate reds wind up in, instead actually keeping some wonderful freshness. And oh yeah, a nice liter bottle to help you splash it around to a few more people at the table. Round juicy black fruits and warm spice throughout, definitely a more modern style Tempranillo than old school, but so satisfying and full of value.
