La Mancha is the largest vineyard in the world, occupying 50% of Spain's vineyards. In this spectacular region with a longstanding wine tradition you'll find Bodega Garcia Carrion La Mancha located in Daimiel (Ciudad Real). It features fifty hectares of experimental vineyards for research and development with different grape varietals, both for young wines and crianzas and reserve wines. The winery has an annual production capacity of 100 million liters and an aging cellar for 10,000 barrels. The production is 250 million liters per year and there is storage capacity for more than 160 million liters.
The winery works with the Cencibel varietal as well as the varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo, Chardonnay and Syrah for young wines and crianzas. In 2006 an ambitious and innovative project was carried out in Spain involving the preparation of sparkling wine using the Charmat method and low alcohol wines. With this undertaking, our winery in Daimiel became a landmark among international wineries, with facilities to produce wines demanded in the world market fulfilling all international standards of quality assurance: ISO, BRC and IFS.
This wine is made exclusively from previously selected Tempranillo grapes. For the preparation of this wine a cold pre-maceration is performed to maximize the aromatic potential and color components. Maceration for five days and devatting is done on 2/3 of the fermentation to avoid forcing the extraction of tannin and aggressiveness on the palate. The newly fermented wine is decanted and remains at rest until completing malolactic fermentation.
Don Luciano Tempranillo Cosecha is a wine of intense red color purple (deep) with blue hues. The nose presents typical varietal aromas (red fruit, ripe berries and Mediterranean wood). The palate is balanced and tasty with typical tanicity of tempranillo grapes.
We recommend serving between 12 and 14°C.
Don Luciano Tempranillo Cosecha is a Mancha D.O. wine that pairs well with pates, smoked meats and stews of Mediterranean cuisine.
