Cortijo III Tinto is soft and typical of Rioja. It has a gamy touch full of pleasant ripe fruit with a well-balanced finish. It goes very well with chicken, turkey, pasta, pizza, and smoked salmon.
80% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha

Tasting notes
A light ruby color with intense red berry fruit aromas and chocolate notes. Sour cherries in the mouth with lively acidity. An irresistible, all purpose wine that is spicy, juicy, balanced and ready to drink.

Rating
2010: 83 Points - Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast: "Smells flat and sweet, with a plastic-like essence. Zesty in feel but angular, with tangy acids and candied red-fruit flavors along with a pinch of dry spice. Tastes oaky on the finish. Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha. "


Technical notes
Cortijo Tinto is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha fermented in stainless steel. 15% of the juice is bled off prior to maceration at low temperature. Post fermentation maceration lasts 10 days after which 50% of the wine ages for 5-6 months in three year old oak barrels and the remainder in stainless steel.
