Food Pairings for Opera Prima Tempranillo
Well, definitely needs some decant time. If one is willing to go through that for a wine at this price, you could have a serviceable wine at a very low price, AS LONG AS you are looking for something kind of thin and very light. Before airing out, this was a long trek through thin wateriness to get to a fairly outstanding, but light fruit at the end. After it aired out, a little something arose to mildly cover the wateriness, yet it was still fairly thin and light. But the hint of outstanding fruit at the end made me want to seek out something (a) more from upscale this producer, Familia Garcia Carrion. (b) try more tempranillos from La Mancha and (c) Try more tempranillos in general, whether from La Mancha, Rioja, or elsewhere.
