Ventisquero Vertice Apalta

This Viña Ventisquero Vertice is a highly concentrated wine with an all- embracing structure, thanks to the firm tannins which have become more rounded because of the bottle-ageing.

The grapes first underwent a low-temperature pre-fermentative maceration to bring out the maximum color and aromas. Then the must was fermented in small stainless steel tanks and open tanks. The management of the tannins in this wine is very important.

The wine was aged for 22 months in 300-litre ultra-fine French oak barrels, 40% of them new and the rest second and third use. Then it was bottle aged for at least 14 months. 

James Suckling Rating: 92 Pts.

Tasting Notes:

It is a concentrated red wine with aromas of black fruits combined with spicy notes and moist earth. On the palate it is voluptuous, silky, and very balanced. This wine has a firm structure with fine tannins and medium-high acidity. The finish is long and persistent with a graphite background.

Deep red with violet hues. The nose reveals black fruit, such as blackberries, intermingled with gentle spices, such as black pepper, damp earth, notes of native forest and a hint of graphite. This wine has a firm structure and silky tannins. Its black fruit and spicy flavors, together with medium to high acidity lend it balance in the mouth and persistence in the finish.

Food Pairing:

This wine is superb paired with spicy food, such as Indian, Thai, Mexican and Spanish cuisine, and other more complex dishes. It also goes well with semi-ripe cheese and strongly flavored meat such as wild boar and venison.
