SITIAL

Cosecha 2012

13.5% Vol

Region: D.O Ribera Del Duero

Variety: Tempranillo

Notes: Has wonderful fresh colour and aroma of violet cherries and dark berries, has no wood aromas as it is a young wine with no aging in American or French barrels. The taste does not live up to the wonderful aroma as the wine is a little green and lacks the full flavour of an aged wine. But still delivers robust and quite powerful red wine in the mouth. The tannins are a little unrefined on the palate ( little grainy), for me leaves a slightly dry after-taste. May benefit from some aging in the bottle? Still for the price it’s a very good everyday drinking wine especially  for BBQ’s as suits the smoky flavours from the coal cooking on an assortment of meats.

Notas: Tiene maravilloso color y aroma de cerezas y bayas violeta oscuro, no tiene aromas de madera, ya que es un vino joven sin crianza en barricas de roble americano o francés. El sabor no esta a la altura del maravilloso aroma ya que el vino es un poco verde y le falta el sabor de un vino añejo. Pero aún así ofrece un robusto y muy potente sabor de tinto en la boca. Los taninos son poco refinados en el paladar (un poco granulado), deja una sensación seca. Podría beneficiarse de envejecimiento en la botella? Sin embargo por el precio es un muy buen vino beber todos los días, especialmente para barbacoas ya que se adapta a los sabores ahumados de la cocina de carbón en un surtido de carnes.

Value for money:  7.5 / 10

Quality: 6.75 / 10

      Try getting it online, If you can get the crianza. or speciaitly wine shops.

      Has great colour and aroma but the flavour doesn’t live up aforementioned bit tarty and heavy tannins.

      cheers
