A delicate combination of dark plum and cola scents alongside violet, blueberry and rock notes.
Picaro Tinto may be the 'young' wine of Dominio del Águila but this is a hell of a lot more serious than it's jovial name suggests. It comes from old vineyards planted on clay and limestone on a northern exposure over looking the Gromejon Valley. The old vines here are interplanted with heritage varietals, meaning Tinto Fino or Tempranillo is aided my tiny additions of Blanca del Pais, Garnacha, Bobal, Tempranillo Gris and others. As with all of Dominio del Águila's vineyards they are farmed meticulously via organic methods with some biodynamic preparations.
Once harvested whole bunches are lightly foot stomped before being fermented in concrete prior to aging and malolactic in barrel in underground caves. It's bottled after a year in oak without fining or filtration.
The palate shows more vibrant dark cherry and fresh blackfruit but also some lovely lifted floral tones, almost violets. Despite the intense heat of the 2015 vintage these old, north facing sites have yielded something with wonderful balance and freshness.
