Viña Albali Tempranillo Valdepeñas 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Viña Albali Tempranillo is made by extracting the optimum amount of tannin and fruit in order to preserve the natural flavors and aromas of the grape variety. The sensations of volume and sweet tannin are achieved by carrying out the malolactic fermentation in American oak barrels and continuing the aging process for a period of two months. This is a young wine that remains in oak barrels for a short time.

Viña Albali is a wine produced by the family owned wine company Felix Solis in the Valdepeñas region of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain. Winemaker Felix Solis was with friends one night when he happened upon the idea of creating a wine that would capture the passionate and life-affirming spirit of the Spanish people. The name Albali comes from a star in the Aquarius constellation. The wines are produced with modern methods, yet sticking to local traditions. The result is an affordable, high quality red wine available in Crianza, Reserva or Gran Reserva releases. The wines are primarily Cencibel (Tempranillo) with precise barrel ageing to impart flavor without overpowering.  Read less

De nuevo otro hallazgo en relación calidad/precio. Un gran vino dentro de la categoría sub 5€. Y una muy buena opción para consumir habitualmente.

    pomegranate, strawberry, cherry and violet on the nose, juicy cherry, lemon, lilac, pear and plum on the palette, wonderful lingering and juicy notes of cranberry, apple and raspberry on the finish. At $9.99/bottle, I'm glad I bought a few -- this vintage seems to be inconsistent: 1 bottle was fantastic, one was good, one was horrible, and the other is still unopened. Stood up very well with a spicy beef stew over rice.

    Bought for EUR 9.25 in Sep, 2004 in Finland at Alko. Had this vintage 1997 on 6 May, 2012, so it has been in my cellar for 7 and 1/2 years. Nice experience, this low priced Valdepenas Gran Reserva has become very smooth, gentle, and almost light. Color is also light and brownish on the edges. Clearly beyond its peak, this wine is a very nice example of how enjoyable old Spanish Gran Reservas can become when stored for a longer time. Wish I had more of these, but I do not.

    Vina Albali Tempranillo is deep red in colour, with purple highlights. It combines aromas of red berries and violets, with the flavour of concentrated blackberries and just a touch of toasted oak. This wine is full-bodied and rich in texture due to the ripened tannins.
