Tasting Notes Martinez Alesanco garnacha red ink
The first thing that stands out is its high intensity cherry red color, with very bright reflections and purple iridescence.
Of remarkable complexity on the nose, with intense aromas of fresh and acidic red fruit (red currant, strawberry and wild raspberry), characteristic of the Grenache of our area, spicy notes from its light aging in barrels, a deep aroma of violet flowers and a delicate mineral background that places us on this plot at 700m altitude surrounded by aromatic herbs such as thyme, lavender, with a ferrous, red and intense clay soil. In the mouth it is a heritage red (trend), fresh, easy to palate, silky to the touch, balanced acidity, intense notes of black fruit with subtle balsamic hints and a long finish. Demonstrating the potential of this variety in high, cool areas and cultivation limits.
