This wine delights with its elegantly dry taste. It was bottled with only 2.2 grams of residual sugar. As you would expect from a wine in the high quality wine range, this Spaniard enchants with the finest balance despite all its dryness. Excellent taste does not necessarily need sugar. On the palate, the texture of this powerful red wine is wonderfully velvety. Due to its present fruit acidity, the Corral de los Altos is exceptionally fresh and lively on the palate. The final of this youthful red wine from the wine-growing region of Aragon, more precisely from Navarra DO, finally convinces with a beautiful reverberation.
