Vina Zielo Tempranillo (750ml)
Vina Zielo is situated in the appellation of Carinena in the provice of Zaragoza in Aragon, Spain. It is a small region with about thirty wineries, though there are about 700 grape growers that sell to cooperative wineries. This region survived the Phylloxera epidemic that struck Europe in the late 1800’s thanks to the stony soil makeup where the grape louse could not survive.
The terroir is influenced by the Ebro River and Valley, high elevation and a marked diurnal range; all factors that contribute to ripe wines with fresh acidity.
Medium intensity red fruit and spice on the nose, with light spice and lots of red cherry flavour. The palate is bright with gentle tannins.
