Aroma

This mature wine has a complex elegant bouquet with hints of leather and spices.

Palate

On the palate it is well balanced and expressive, with rounded and polished tannins.

Food Matching

The perfect accompaniment to all kinds of meats, stews or cured cheeses. We recommended that this wine is served half an hour after opening.

Gran Reserva

A wine in the Gran Reserva age category must be aged for at least 60 months in oak barrels and in bottles; 24 months of this must be in the oak barrel. A wine classified as a Gran Reserva can therefore only be sold in the sixth year after the harvest.

Winemaking Note

The contact of the skins with must in the maceration process is longer than usual in order to obtain more structure and body. Afterwards, the wine is aged in American oak barrels and in bottle for more than six years.

Winery Profile

Denomiacion de Origen (D.O.) Valdepeñas

The Valley of the Stones – Val de Peñas – is at the southern end of La Mancha, the enormous high plateau which is the world’s largest wine growing region. Landscapes there are dominated by vineyards, cereal crops, olive groves and sheep. In the town of the same name, Valdepeñas, everything still revolves around wine. The town is also the centre of the world-famous Manchego cheese.

An extreme continental climate with cold winters and long, hot summers and up to 2,800 hours of sun per year enables special wines to grow. In chalky, sandy and clay soils, it is mainly red wines such as Cencibel - better known as Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha – that grow. To a limited extent, there are also white wines such as Arién and Macabeo.

There Felix Solis produces wines for the lines Albali and Los Molinos, and the wines Diego de Almagro, Soldepeñas, Peñasol, Consigna, Marques de Bataneros and Sangria Peñasol. In Valdepeñas, Pagos del Rey produces the wines in the Valdepeñas line.
