Cantauri Young Red

HISTORY

Cantauri is a young wine with which Bodegas Alonso González began life back in 1982. It is made according to traditional methods with the most advanced technology and without forgetting its roots.

VINEYARD

Bodegas Alonso González has 20 ha of Tempranillo grapes and 2.5 ha of other red wine varieties (Garnacha, Mazuelo, Graciano, etc.). These vineyards are situated between 520 m and 580 m above sea level, which gives them a special microclimate protected on the right by the Sierra Cantabria Mountains and on the left by the River Ebro. Calcareous clay soils.

VARIETY

100% TEMPRANILLO

WINEMAKING

After handpicking, the grapes are placed in stainless steel tanks where they undergo carbonic maceration (uncrushed grapes) for a period of 9 to 14 days. They are then pumped over and a secondary malolactic fermentation begins. Once this process has been completed, the wine stabilizes and is ready for bottling.
