Suertes del Marques 7 Fuentes


Suertes del Marques 7 Fuentes, Canary Islands, Spain 2018 (750ml)


Siete Fuentes is the village red wine of Suertés del Marques, coming from dozens of small parcels of various altitudes and terroirs in Valle de la Orotava. Mostly from Listàn Negro from vines ranging from 10- to 80-year of age, whole-cluster pressed, and fermented in concrete and stainless steel, the wine is then aged for about 10 months in concrete and neutral oak. This wine is fresh and vibrant, displaying bright savory aromas and complex bouquet of dark berry, herbal, olives, earth, smoke and ashy notes. Showing a bit of reduction on arrival to New York, the 2017 is really opening up now, and should be singing with another month or two in bottle.
