VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION
Spain’s other classic red varietal is now offered alongside the Tempranillo wines that have made Anciano a favourite around the world. Norrel Robertson MW has selected this stunning value wine from Valencia, on Spain’s Mediterranean coast.
Terres dels Alforins is a fertile valley in the south west of the province of Valencia and is called the “Valencian Tuscany”: a multitude of small plots between the sea and the “meseta” where vines have been tended since Roman times. Mostly non-irrigated vineyards with low yields. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks for 7 days at 22oC and then a portion of the wine is matured in oak barrels for 7 months.
Varieties: 100% Tempranillo
RS: 9 g/l
