This wine is affectionately called Tintico, or ‘little red’ which refers to the fact that its profile is light and lively, often served by the locals with a slight chill. The mineral-rich soils and cool climate of the mountainous Navarra foot hills, create the perfect terroir for Tempranillo, which is fermented cool in stainless steel tanks to preserve its fruity character.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby-red in color, this playful Tempranillo shows sumptuous aromas of red cherries, plums and wild berries. On the palate, this wine is layered and balanced with a zesty freshness that persists well into the finish.

Food Pairing

Tintico is a perfect choice for barbecued fare, assorted tapas, schwarma, and gyros with tzatziki sauce.
