Tasting Logic

 

A bright, fresh, unoaked red with evidence of some Carbonic Maceration, the acidity is high with a low level of tannins - this simple style of wine is one to make sure you are familiar with, other ones such as Mencia, Valpolicella, Loire Cabernet Franc can also have the same sort of character. It is important to understand that this wine has both underripe and incredibly fruity elements due to the winemaking.
