2020 Hermanos Vina Sastre Crianza
A beautiful red wine produced with respect for nature and the wine (and wine lovers). Vina Sastre's philosophy is clear: “Create a small production with utmost care.” The cultivation of the vineyards has been ecological since the beginning, based on the idea that the quality of the soil and the individuality of each vine are reflected in the wine. The entire process is natural – no mineral fertilizers are used, nor any inorganic pesticides or chemicals.
The grapes of Sastre Crianza come from specific vineyards along the Duero River, located at an altitude of 800m. The sticks are between 20 and 60 years old. The grapes are harvested manually, which allows for a very careful selection. Upon arrival in the cellar, they are destemmed and gently pressed, after which the juice and peels undergo alcoholic fermentation and further maturation. After removing the skins, the wine continues to rest until it undergoes lactic acid fermentation. Finally, the wine matures for 14 months in French and American oak barrels (225l).
In the glass the wine is intense cherry red with a hint of violet. On the nose, the Sastre Crianza has a complex nose with aromas of black fruit, followed by tobacco, vanilla and spices. On the palate, this medium to full bodied wine is very pleasant and somewhat creamy with a smooth attack characterized by black fruit, followed by powerful, balanced tannins. Complex full wine with a lot of potential.
