Cuerno de diablo

The final wine at the M&D story telling wine tasting. This is an artesian red wine from Castilla La Mancha. The winery is based in Mota de Cuervo in the Cuenca province, but the grapes for this wine were grown just down the road near Toboso in the Toledo province.

It is a vegan wine made with minimal intervention and blends no less than five grape varieties (Tinta Velasco, Petit Verdot, Garnacha Tintorera , Cabernet Sauvignon y Graciano) then aged in 75%/25% French/American oak for 14 months.

It has a fruity scent with hints of grass, bell pepper and a bit of spice.

A dry wine with medium tannins and acidity, but enough to dry my mouth. Decent body it fills the mouth. Didn’t get the fruit flavours over the tannins but did get the spicy finish.
