La Capital Tempranillo Madrid

00210115

La Capital has been created by Sylvia Iglesias, technical manager at Grupo Sanz. Central Spain reds have gained much popularity in recent years. Sanz acquired an existing, small winery in Madrid and added their superb Tempranillos to their well established and reputed white wine range. Considerable altitude, continental climate and soil type result in reds with lighter body, less tannic but full of flavour with an attractive mineral character. International markets increasingly demanded them to complement the Spanish red spectrum. Notice that the front label depicts a district around central Madrid’s main avenue La Castellana, including Real Madrid’s Bernabeu stadium.
