Solarce wines are made of estate-grown grapes harvested from the 100 hectares of vineyard in the village of Ausejo in DOCa Rioja. The grapes are selected in the field and later in the cellar, before going into stainless steel tanks to be fermented. The wine undergoes a further malolactic fermentation in wooden barrels and stainless steel tanks, before going into 225 litre French and American oak barrels where it is aged for 8 months before release.
Intense cherry red in colour Solarce Tinto is highly aromatic on the nose with caramel, blackcurrant, cherry, violets and resinous notes. In the mouth, this is a broad and powerful wine with good structure and well-balanced tannins.
Solarce combines well with all sorts of red and white meats, and Mediterranean dishes like rice.
