Country: Spain, Rioja
Tasting Notes: It stands out for its ruby-red intensity. Clean and bright, it shows a marked garnetred rim. The nose reveals very intense red fruit, raspberries, cherries and cranberries, enveloping balsamic and spicy aging notes: vanilla, liquorice, dark chocolate and cloves. Outstanding freshness and balance in the mouth, coupling a pleasant acidity with silky, fatty tannins that give it a good structure and a pleasant mouthfeel. Long, well-balanced aftertaste, promising great persistence over time as it ages in the bottle.
Varietal: Blend of 95% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo, Garnacha and even Viura
Pairing: The structure and elegance of the Martelo 2014 makes it a perfect food
companion. Long in the mouth, it is perfect with braised and roasted meats, as
well as game and cured sausages.
