Pata Negra Crianza is a wine made from high quality grapes where acidity, sugar and phenolic compounds create a perfect balance. These carefully harvested grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks with maceration times and temperatures that lend themselves to a special, very aromatic and flavorful wine. Once malolactic fermentation is achieved, the wine is sent to American and French oak barrels, which subtly provides the wine with the more special characters that make it a complex, intense and surprising wine.
Appearance: Powerful cherry red color with a purple trim, clean and bright. Not evolved. Nose: Once oxygenated, distinct aromas of red and black fruit appear perfectly accompanied by balsamic aromas, direct and subtly spicy with slight hints of oak.
It is round and distinguished on the palate, at the same time powerful and structured with a complete balance between wine and wood, leaving behind a persistent velvety feel.
Serving temperature: 16ºC
Pairing: Iberian meat, grilled ribeye, assorted cheeses.
It is recommended to decant this wine before serving to enjoy its full potential.
