Domaine Venta La Vega, Aldea 2019

Our opinion:

On the nose, this wine does not remind us of the powerful and characteristic wines of the Albacete region. It is the lightness that prevails to give a wine on the crunchy red fruits, aniseed and peppery notes, typical of the grape varieties in assembly in this vintage!
In the mouth, the fruit ripens and jams. We find spices, pepper, while keeping a nice suppleness. A balanced wine.

THE WINEMAKER

The Venta La Vega estate has had an ecological philosophy from the beginning. In this region they grow mainly Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet). They are lucky to work with two of the best winemakers in Spain, Raúl Pérez Pereira and Jose Angel Marchante.
The vineyard is located at an altitude of 800 meters and is protected by the Mugron, a high massif that gives this region a very special climate. Its climate, not so extreme, but very dry, allows them to do a work in the greatest respect of the environment, and moreover with a very low content of sulfur.
The harvest is done partly manually on small plots. Usually, it is done at the end of September.
