Dacu, Tempranillo 2017
Dacu is a single-vineyard wine made in the unknown region of Ribera del Guadiana, located in southwestern Spain next to the Portuguese border. Although unknown, it is the second largest geographical wine appellation in Spain. Similar to the great grape varieties of Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo, Tempranillo has an ability to adapt itself to different climatic conditions and geographies and can also communicate the character of the place where it is grown before imparting its own personality. The sublime Tempranillo grape can transmit all the minute differences of its terroir. In Ribera del Guadiana, Tempranillo shows intense raspberry flavors, silky tannins, lots of dense, luscious fruit and balanced acidity that is bright and fresh.
