ENSAMBLAJE TINTO 2018
By blending different red grape varieties, Viñátigo's goal with their Ensamblaje red is to showcase the volcanic minerality of the northwest of Tenerife. Depending on the conditions of the vintage, the proportions and grapes blended in this wine may vary. The grapes are harvested and vinified separately. The Ensamblaje Tinto has a spicy, firey nose with strong pepper, forest mushroom and jam. On the palate it is big and muscular with firm tannins that allow the ground fruit notes to really show themselves.
Negramoll is Canary Island's most delicate red variety. It's thin skin and big berries yield wines that are light bodied but have very powerful aromatics. The ungrafted vines grow near the Ocean, around 300 meters above sea level. The wine is aged for six months in neutral barrels. The delicate aromas of red berry fruits are accompanied by an intriguing wisp of toffee and a powerful yet subtle volcanic minerality. A smooth and rounded palate shows polished tannins and a gentle, pleasant finish.
