Tempranillo Dude.

Flaco Tempranillo 2015 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Flaco translates to "dude". Tempranillo is Spainís signature grape. Madrid is the great unknown in terms of Spanish wine regions, but itís the home to old Tempranillo vineyards and wines selling at excellent prices. Vinos del AtlŠntico produces this wine from organically grown, dry-farmed estate vineyards at 2400 foot elevation.
  • Flaco Tempranillo 2015 has cherry candy, red berry, and spice aromas carry through into a bright and lively palate with chalky tannins on the finish. Fermented in stainless steel and concrete, unoaked. This is a fun wine to sip by itself but would be a highly versatile food wine. Cheers to this expressive taste of Madrid at a super price for a sustainable estate wine of this quality. Real cork. 13.5% ABV. Local price/750 ml: 10. (included in Woodland Wine Merchant 6/60 deal, 2/9/17.)
