12 Bottle Case Flaco Estate Tempranillo Vinos de Madrid 2019 (Spain) Rated 90VM w/ Free Shipping
- Free Shipping
Bright violet. Pungent cherry pit, cassis and licorice scents are sharpened by a peppery nuance. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and dark berry flavors and a touch of espresso. Dusty tannins frame a long, nervy finish that echoes the cherry note. This is a pretty serious wine for its price category. (Josh Raynolds)
Wine Tasting Notes
Flaco Tempranillo is a perfect introduction to Spain's most well-known red grape variety. Outside Madrid at high altitude, we find a perfect environment for growing Tempranillo in a balanced way. Produced by Vinos Atlantico in DO Vinos de Madrid, Flaco's luscious fruit and soft texture make it a perfect wine for everyday drinking. A highly perfumed nose evokes ripe red berries and flowers. A hint of white pepper lends a spicy touch. The plush, seamless and gently sweet Flaco Tempranillo offers raspberry and cherry compote flavors that become more energetic on the back half. The fresh, pure character of this wine makes this an extremely versatile wine to pair with food.
The fresh, pure character of this wine makes this an extremely versatile wine to pair with food. This wine pairs well with white meats like pork and chicken and flaky fish like hake, cod or flounder. This has the fruit and acidity to match with red meats, as well.
