Heavy fruit and berry flavors, light sweet wine. Young grape flavors notably reserved in 100% stainless steal.

Tasting notes: Vivid ruby-red. Bright, spice-accented red fruit and flowers on the nose and palate. Light-bodied, very fruity and brisk, with firm finishing cut and no tannins to get in the way of immediate gratification. This is way too easy to drink. - Winery Flaco, made with Spain’s signature Tempranillo grape, means “dude” in English. In the words of The Savvy Lush, Flaco “is the best goof-proof, budget-friendly wine out there. Spain is the largest producer of Tempranillo. These thick-skinned grapes are grown in regions that have hot days followed by cool evenings. This creates a concentrated, yet balanced flavor.” It is produced by Compañía de Vinos del Atlántico in the Demoninación de Origen (DO) of Vinos de Madrid. Flaco shows the complexity of a serious wine for the price of a song! The luscious fruit and soft texture make it a perfect wine for everyday drinking. Madrid is not only the capital of Spain but also one of the country's most interesting wine growing regions. The outskirts of this great royal city are full of old Tempranillo vines. Most Spaniards do not know that Madrid makes wine, and therefore don't know the incredible values that Madrid showcases at the present time. Madrid is the great unknown. What makes this wine unique? Produced from organically grown, dry-farmed vineyards. Flaco shows the complexity of twice its price. These vines are tended in diverse micro-climates, allowing for more consistency of ripeness year after year. Yields are very low (31 ha/hl average) resulting in wines that showcase extreme quality for its price point. Grape: 100% Tempranillo. Vines planted from 1995 - 2003. Tended in clay soil at 750m (2,400ft) of elevation Pairing Suggestions: The fresh, pure character of this wine makes this an extremely versatile wine to pair with food. This wine pairs well with white meats like pork and chicken and flaky fish like hake, cod or flounder. This has the fruit and acidity to match with red meats, as well. Vinification and ageing: Aged in stainless steel tanks and cement tanks of 10,000 lit capacity. The short cycle Tempranillo variety is usually harvested mid Sept. Maceration and fermentation takes 10 days for Tempranillo, followed by 2 days of post maceration at cool temperatures (41° F). Alcohol Content: 13.5%

Cherry, berry and herbal notes mingle in this light, juicy red. Light tannins and lively acidity support a supple texture. A simple wine. Drink now.

(all stainless steel): Vivid ruby-red. Bright, spice-accented red fruit and flowers on the nose and palate. Light-bodied, very fruity and brisk, with firm finishing cut and no tannins to get in the way of immediate gratification. This is way too easy to drink. A good pizza/hamburger wine, Flaco's 2012 Tempranillo (100% Tempranillo) is a noteworthy value at $9 a bottle. Light-bodied with plenty of herbaceous strawberry and sweet cherry fruit, it offers a pleasant mouthfeel as well as good texture. The word "Flaco" in Spanish means "dude," and this is a wine that all dudes can enjoy over the next year. Flaco, which means "dude" in English, is a wine made from Spains signature grape with character that belies its price. The head-pruned vineyards are in the Arganda district, southeast of Madrid, on clay over granite subsoil at 2,400 feet elevation. Madrid is, as yet, a largely unknown region - hence its abili...
