Valdelosfrailes Prestigio 2006 Cigales


Prestigio is a big, highly expressive tempranillo that features all flavour layers deriving from the fruit, traditional winemaking and maturing in new oak barrels for over one year. Uncork the bottle, splash into your glass, let it breath and start enjoying it while it opens up to its full potential. Cigales is next door to better known Ribera del Duero and red wines are somewhat similar. This kind of tempranillo reds together with clarete are the most representative of Cigales and the best manifestation of its soil and climate.
