ARCO IRIS ‘Rainbow’ Rosé
APPELLATION: Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León.
VINIFICATION: Sustainable. Cool maceration at 8ºC for 12 hours be-fore fermentation at 16-18ºC in stainless steel tanks.
TASTING NOTES: Strikingly deep raspberry colour with intense raspberry and strawberry fruit flavours on the nose. Good weight on the palate, almost like a light red. Packed with raspberry fruit, this is a great food rose and even greater on its own.
FOOD PAIRING: Fish, seafood, salads, soft cheese and white meats.
PRODUCER: Under the inclemency of a markedly continental climate, although with a shy Atlantic temperament, withstanding a sharp thermal gradient between days and nights, with thermal records marking extreme values, and taking advantage of the troughs and bends of the undulations of the land in which an almost miraculous and favorable microclimate is generated, although with a pluviometric index of the most scarce of the wine regions of Spain, we find Bodegas Fariña, founded in 1942. Its vineyards are cultivated in soils of different natures, sandy-clayey, sandy, and for the most part covered by a natural pebble tapestry of alluvium that during the night hours gives off the heat accumulated by solar radiation, favoring the vegetative cycle of the Vineyard and ripening of its fruit.
