Casale del Giglio Tempranijo IGT

Grape Variety: Tempranijo


Alcohol: 14.5% Vol


Vinification: 100% fully ripe Tempranillo grapes, which may have been allowed to shrivel slightly on the vine, undergo cold maceration for two days at 10℃ to extract as much aroma as possible from the skins. This initial stage is followed by a very slow,spontaneous,submerged cap fermentation from 16℃ to 24℃ over 15 to 18 days with periodic delestage to aerate the yeasts. Following fermentation the new wine macerates for a further 12-15 days on the skins to extract maximum tannins. A small fraction of the mass-15-20% depending on the vintage-is aged in cherry wood tonneau casks while the remainder is stored in stainless steel tanks.


Colour: Deep ruby-red


Bouquet: With aromas of raspberry, blackcurrant, woodland fruits and a hint of ripe marasca cherry


Taste: A rich, concentrated palate where notes of spice and fruit, highlighted by the presence of sweet tannins, lead to a long finish. Well suited to long bottle aging.
