PostHeaderIcon Terra Ibera

This is a low-priced red wine (less than 2 euros) made with Tempranillo, Valencian Wines Cooperative Sinarcas La Protectora. Sinarcas is a municipality located approximately 100 km from the city of Valencia (Spain), belonging to the county Requena-Utiel and about 900 meters high. on sea level.

This town is accessed via the N-330 road, from Madrid or Valencia from A-3 road and from the same N-330 road from Teruel, Alicante, Albacete and Cuenca. Her extension is largely made up of vineyards and cereal crops, the first being that more hectares occupied and have realized that wines like this comment.

About 10 years ago I had the opportunity to taste a wine, Cerro Carpio, bought from the same winery and it was just bottled, it was a 6-month aging in oak, Tempranillo and still oozing think the purple, tannic and some vegetal character on the palate, after 2 years in my house (not for wine storage in summer) changed the tone to a more orange color, velvety in the mouth and is delicious for the occasion.
Last week we bought a selection of reds, Arcaz reserve aged and Terra Ibera young wine, which the latter have opened a bottle and I enjoyed a young wine with a moderate degree alcohol, 12.5 º, a bright ruby color and very clean. On the nose full of red fruit, floral and fresh. Already in the mouth has good acidity, a balance between acid and sweet aftertaste with a wine that evokes its roots. 
A Tempranillo 100% wine from the D.O. Utiel-Requena to take every day and accompany this cold winter, ideal to take along a good cheese and accompanied by some dry rice and pork sausage or a good stew with beans or chikpeas .

Are yet to try the red Arcaz aged with Tempranillo and Bobal, the jewel of the land in the region Utiel-Requena and I think we can surprise addition to the prices of these two do not reach the 4 euros per bottle.
