REGIONCastilla Y Leon
A fruity nose with plum, wild berry and black-cherry aromas is solid and pleasant. A tight palate with grip is healthy, while this tastes slightly green but also fruity and fresh, with mint and spice notes on the finish.
An alternative red from Spain that surprised the panel with its combination of mineral and violet aromas.
'Pizarra' is the Spanish for slate, and here refers to the slate that characterises the rocky, mineral-rich soils of Bierzo. A deep cherry red with violet reflections. Lively on the nose, with aromas of strawberry, plum and blackberry, and subtle floral lift. The fruit-filled palate has elegant and restrained tannins. Partner with pasta dishes with fresh tomato sauces.
