From the Spanish wine region D.O. Dominio de Valdepusa comes the varietal Petit Verdot from Marques de Grinon.
Few varietal Petit Verdot can match this dark purple in the glass. The expressive bouquet is dominated by ripe berry fruit - especially cranberry - and smoky aromas. On the palate, this Spanish red is very concentrated with lush wild raspberry fruit. The rich tannins are very well integrated into the dense body and are accompanied by intense wood notes. The finish of this wine is wonderfully long, present and deep.
Vinification of the Marques de Grinon Dominio de Valdepusa Petit Verdot

The careful harvest is done by hand in September. Once the harvest arrives at the winery of Marques de Grinon, the grapes are gently pressed and the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks. Finally, this wine is aged for 12-15 months in wooden barrels made of French Allier oak.
