PostHeaderIcon El Rosso winery, wine spirit

In the previous post said that our trip to l'Alcalatén area in the province of Castellon, was quite helpful, because we found some wine over which the VT Castellón on its website showed.

Located in the village of La Barona, in the municipality of the Vall d'Alba, we find this wine cellar, small but unique, and almost without trying we were inside the building which houses the warehouse and shipping of wines. El Rosso is a project of a local family, prepares traditional olive oil of high quality, with the help of Eloy, an experienced winemaker from Requena, have materialized a couple of wines of high quality and very promising.

This winery does not belong to the association VT Castellón, so their wines are labeled as Vino de Mesa, though I think wine should be labeled as Vino de Pago. 'Esperit' is the brand of wine to be found in this elaborate, a red and white wines that show the spirit of a 'terroir' and an important work from the vine to the bottle.

Both the red and white have the same brand 'esperit', a bottle with a very attractive design and more than satisfactory organoleptic properties. Maybe in the marketing, their owners still have to work longer, give a little image to the tasting area, wearing glasses more expressive and emphasize more on the commercial side, because the wine and its price and have half the business travel undertaken.

The 'esperit' red wine is a varietal Syrah, a ripe cherry color, with aromas of cocoa and roasted, a bit of graphite, which is showing subtly agitated glass 4 months of first-year French oak barrels where it matured . The palate is quite fat and unctuous, sweet tannin and a very long journey. A wine made with grapes mature enough reflecting its sweetness on the palate and high degree (14.5 degrees).

The white variety, Macabeo, is a wine that has spent three months in new barrels to win in complex aromas. In the light has a yellow color with golden hues and nose shows notes of citrus and apples, taste is nice and fat, appearing in retronasal aromas of pineapple and banana. A good choice for white meats and fish.

The truth is that for me was a surprise to find this store to have some excellent wines and spend some time chatting with the owners and winemaker, who was at that time on it.
