Bodegas Ateca Atteca 2017
Atteca 2017 has a deep cherry colour and has intense aromas of ripe red fruit that combines perfectly with the spicy notes of coca, vanilla and licorice that respond to excellent aging. Bold and strong on the palate with a very fresh and fruity mid-palate. It is delicious and complex, with a remarkable finish, where the fruity and spicy aromas reappear in the retronasal. Magnificent expression of an elegant Aragonese Grenache with very ripe tannins.
100% Garnacha. Maceration-fermentation was done in stainless steel tanks for approx. 20/25 days at a temperature of 25°C, followed by malolactic fermentation and subsequently aging in French oak barrels for 12 months.
