PostHeaderIcon Red Wines: Venta del Puerto n º 12 and Les Alcusses

Venta del Puerto n º 12 and Les Alcusses are 2 wines from DO Valencia 'Alto Clariano' wines inside the province of Valencia. Quality wines and a 'blend' of carefully tended vineyards and thrilled by the winemakers of the area by placing the DO Valencia on the international scene of the wines.

The first of these, Venta del Puerto n º 12, is made in the Cooperative La Viña, de la Fuente de la Higuera, home of the famous Valencian painter Juan de Juanes. This is a 'blend' of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, tempranillo, syraz and old vines. This wine is clean and bright, dark cherry red color with touches of Cardinals.

The 12 months of aging in American oak give it a ripe black fruit aromas, raspberries and blackberries, sugary notes, to busy drink can notice a roasted flavor, chocolate and mineral somewhat notorious tone. In the mouth it has fleshy, sweet tones, pronounced tannin, with integrated acidity that highlights the presence of ripe fruit. Fruity aftertaste and long, powerful and very pleasant. A recommended wine with a price ranging between 8 and 9 euros.

Les Alcusses, the younger brother of Maduresa, fruit of the effort and work of Pablo Calatayud, the architect of the wines from Celler del Roure in Moixent, presents a fabulous assemblage of Monastrell, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo in a broth who, having grown about 4 months in barrels, after a second malolactic fermentation, does not detract from one of the highest notes in the wines of new generation.

We present a nearly opaque cherry color with aromas of ripe black fruit (currants, blackberries, plums, ...), with some aromas of charcoal and coffee. In the mouth has a good entry, with tasty, elegant, velvety, well balanced, good acidity and tannins well integrated. Long aftertaste, quite fruity and gourmand persistence.

We also talked about a price between EUR 8 and 9, same as above, but with the difference that a wine is young and adapted to the taste of our day, combining in perfect marriage to a dry rice, baked rice as a typical La Costera area in Valencia PROVINCE.
