Valdelosfrailes Rosado

00220116

Valdelosfrailes Rosado is an acclaimed ‘clarete’ that combines tempranillo and verdejo. It is a representative example of this so very Castilian Spanish wine style. Clarete is a traditional wine term to refer to those rosés historically made with a mixture of red and white grapes that differ from ordinary rosé and pale pink wines. Claretes have a little more body and flavour and experienced a revival in the second half of the 20th century
