Evento Reserva Especial de Castillo de Mendoza

It is the result of the best Tempranillo grapes that are destemmed.

The grapes are transported to the winery in small boxes to be selected first by clusters and then by grains.

The malolactic fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels in which the wine remains on its lees and matures for 30 months.

Finally stay for 18 months minimum in bottle before going to market.

Colour: Deep cherry red colour with ruby and violet shades.

Aroma: Very intense in the nose with grape variety aromas of blackberry, cassis, raspberry,  joined by floral and fruity notes of strawberries and violets. All of them well integrated with the aromas from a fine aging in French oak barrels with hints of coconut, cream, coffee, vanilla.

Taste: Full bodied in the mouth with a remarkable fine sweet tannins.
