Over 130 years old, Spain's Torres Winery almost single-handedly established the now-famous Penedès wine region. Intense redcurrant and plum, plus coffee bean flavours, with silky tannins. Pair with spicy beef fajitas, empanadas, filet mignon or grilled lamb.
This dry ruby coloured wine features intense woody, empyreumatic, spicy and fruity scents and offers a broad texture as well as fleshy tannins.
It has aromas of jam, with a silky elegance in the mouth.
The rich, sensual aroma is typical of the grape varieties recalling small red and black berries such as cherries and blackcurrants, green coffee beans, liquorice and the characteristic vanilla and leather notes from ageing. On the palate the wine is full and silky with dense, well-structured tannins.
Years of experimentation and constant innovation, while recovering indigenous varieties that had been lost and attention to new consumer tendencies, the D.O. Penedes offers an exquisite range of quality red wines. The red wines of the Penedes improve with the passage of time if kept in the appropriate conditions (protected from light, smells and vibrations and at a constant temperature not above 15C). Depending on the vintage and the grape variety, they should evolve well for 4-5 years. This wine is characterized by its dark ruby colour with light russet tones and its aromatic complexity. There's a predominance of notes typical from its ageing in the cask (such as toast, vegetation), accompanied by notes of menthol and spices on a background of ripe cherry and plum jam. On the palate it has a lush attack with a voluptuous body and velvety tannins. Perfect pairings are charcuterie and meat dishes.
