This is an alternative to sister red tempranillo La Capital for those who like slightly more sophisticated wines that combine fruity flavours with a layer from the oak ageing process. It is produced by the same small winery in Madrid. This Tempranillo falls also within that central Spain lighter, mineral style in vogue. As an ulterior creation it was bound to hit back with a label depicting a different district by the local river, including Atletico de Madrid’s historical stadium.
