More about this wine from Vino de la Tierra de Castilla, Spain
Vino de la Tierra de Castilla is an emerging Spanish wine region and is cranking out some super solid juice! About 50 miles southeast of Madrid, younger winemakers are creating a home base here for many reasons, and one big one is that the rules are a lot less stringent than most of the legacy Spanish regions. This means winemakers have much more freedom for innovation. This bottle is an awesome example of these new wave Spanish winemakers innovating with some classic grapes.

Tempranillo is an iconic Spanish varietal, but the winemaker behind Realce is working with 100% certified organic grapes. The grapes are all hand harvested, the juice is vinified aka turned into wine in steel tanks, and, finally, it is aged in concrete barrels. Yeah, concrete-like cement. This style of winemaking means you get uber ripe flavors bursting from each glass.
