for this region?

 

Castilla la Mancha is a region located in the central Iberian plateau that up until recently was mostly known for producing bulk wine. However, winemakers now produce more delicate releases. The main reds are made from Cencibel, the local name for Tempranillo, with blends from Cabernet Sauvignon, Monastrell, Garnacha, Syrah and Bobal. 
 
But the area is best known for whites made from Airen. This grape used to be grown mainly for brandies. But nowadays, the varietal is produced as a still wine which is dry, light and refreshing.

  • Anciano Reserva Valdepenas 7 Year 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This is a burgundy/tawny color, with coppery tones around the edge. The aroma is delightful.....initial smells of cocoa, leather, baking spice (vanilla, cinnamon is most noted), oak and fresh berry fruits. The flavors follow suit, and after a few mins of chilling, they really come out upon re-warmth.....cherry vanilla, muted cinnamon, oaked to... Read More

  • Acantus VdT 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I have the 2013 version. Way better than I expected, for a bottle under $7 in price at my local grocery store wine section. Best at cellar temperature, definitely. A little austere, i.e. not too bold and fruity, and that pleases me very well. Though not as stridently so as a great Bordeaux, which are my favorite wines. Just a good wine to have o... Read More

  • Venta Morales Tempranillo Made With Organic Grapes 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Still really, really good. I remember when I ordered this and others drank it early. Plenty of dark cherries, herbal notes and both blue and blackberry nuances. Mellow tannic profile joins good acidity to a slightly sweetened aftertaste. Laying this down worked. Paul 88 points Read More
