Dominio de Manciles Rosado 2019 – DO. Arlanza
Arlanza is located in the provinces of Burgos and Palencia, Castile and Leon, Spain. The DO takes its name from the river Arlanza which flows through it.
The first written evidence of wine production in this area comes from the 12th century, when the monastery of Santa María de Bujedo de Juarros purchased vineyards on the banks of the rivers Arlanza and Duero.
The most remarkable feature of the territory is its great diversity at all levels, and the land is not an exception. Throughout the production area, there are several different types of soil. The diversity in geology results in wines with different characteristics, in general terms we can find sandy soils derived from granitic rock, resulting in long wines, subtle and elegant. In the central area there are clay soils from shales, origin of mineral and structured wines.
Grapes: 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha
Colour: Intense pink with cherry tones and salmon reflections.
Nose: Powerful nose with fruity aromas, strawberries, apricot and wild berries (currant, blueberry).
Taste: Fresh, fruity, fatty on the palate with a slight spiciness due to the carbonic it retains, an intense finish and long aftertaste.
