This gorgeous Spanish red blend of Syrah and Petit Verdot is named after the distinctive “caliza” or “limestone” soils at the Dominio de Valdepusa estate which give this wine its elegant personality and unique flavour profile with delicate hints of minerality.
Deep violet color with bright cherry sparkles
The nose shows complex and intense fruit aromas with hints of forest berries and lush ripe cherries that are delicately supported by a subtle minerality and notes of mint.
On the palate, it has an intense personality. Rich wild berry flavours and undertones of cinnamon and dark chocolate. Round and full in the mouth with pleasantly refreshing acidity.
Manual harvest, followed by destemming and discharge by gravity in the fermentation tanks. Prolonged maceration of up to 4 weeks and ageing in Allier French oak barrels, new and semi-new, for 10 months in a heated ageing shed. Wine is not subject to clarification or filtering.
