La Granja 360 Tempranillo
A 100% Tempranillo with ripe, aromatic berry aromas and intense flavours of fresh fruit. Flavors are bright and shiny and its balanced acidity helps the finish linger for a while.
You will enjoy… its nice body and surprisingly good staying power for a wine at this price.
Out of curiosity… every La Granja 360 label nods to Spanish old proverbs. But probably, this one is the most international of all popular sayings, or haven’t you ever heard the expression.
Did you know that…? Typically, Tempranillo grape gives medium-bodied reds, with medium acidity, medium tannins and red fruit flavours (raspberry). In a nutshell, very balanced and nice to drink wines like classic Rioja reds. Nevertheless, you might feel riper flavours of berries in it which makes it medium-to-full bodied due to its origin. We can’t forget that Cariñena’s climate is hotter than Rioja’s.

Once upon a time, in a farm far, far away, there was a piglet that dreamed of flying high, high up to the sun. One night, a warm breeze from the south entered the farm filling every corner with irresistible scents of sweet raspberries. The piggy was so taken by the aroma that followed the scent to the border of the farm. Suddenly, he felt a magic wind lift him up and a voice asked, ARE YOU READY FOR THE WINE FUN? He couldn’t believe that he was flying! The flying pig myth was truly real. How could it be possible? The answer is inside yourself.
No one better than the wine critic par excellence, Robert Parker to explain what to expect from La Granja 360 Tempranillo: “This Tempranillo has a super-ripe kirsch and blueberry jam-scented bouquet, while the palate offers joyful, unfettered Tempranillo that has no intention of providing an intellectual drinking experience, but rather delivers plush, ripe, red cherry and strawberry fruit. Drink now.” Not bad, right? 😉
