Bodegas Aessir Bobal Tinto (750ml)
Castilla La Mancha
Bodegas Aessir started off with the help of the Carbó family in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, Barcelona, who has been in the Cava business since 1929 and managing 8 hectares of different varieties. Today Bodegas Aessir is committed to some very unique organic winemaking projects such as the production of wines made of the Bobal variety in the province of Cuenca at 969 meters above sea level.
This wine will take you to the Mediterranean with its warming ripe red and dark fruit notes and light spice on the nose. It is round and fleshy on the palate; dense and silky with berry fruit, balsamic and light spice notes. Fresh balanced acidity and fine tannins hold everything together harmoniously.
Made from bush trained organic Bobal grapes. The grapes are destemmed and not crushed, put into stainless steel tanks where they are left to macerate for 6 days. Malolactic fermenation happens in tank and the wine then ages for 6 months in lightly toasted French oak barrels.
