A vibrant, full flavoured red from a Cariñena cellar that regularly receives 90+ points from top publication Guía Peñín. Pure Garnacha, Altogrado has an abundance of juicy ripe raspberry fruit of impressive intensity. A deliciously drinkable drop!
"Really nice wine. Powerful and tasty. Went well with a beef stew. 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
The region of Cariñena is “home to some of the best value reds of Spain, if not the world” (Decanter) and this gorgeously intense, ripe fruit red is from one of the most awarded cellars there. The winemaker never releases this wine – it’s reserved as the trump card to add a boost of bright, punchy fruit to other reds. However, our Buyer Beth wasn’t named ‘Buyer of the Year’ by Drinks Business for nothing and persuaded the winery to bottle it pure exclusively for us. In fact it’s so good that we’ve had to embargo sales here at staff HQ. Made from the grapes of old Garnacha vines, this red is seriously long and brightly fruity – the ideal partner for traditional Spanish lamb dishes, grilled meats or tapas. A great choice for a barbecue, too.
