Dominio de la Vega is a family winery with hundred-year-old vineyards in the Utiel-Requena region of Spain specializing in the production of cava and red wines of the native Bobal grape. Paraje Tornel is a red of 100% Bobal, cultivated traditionally "in glass" from 60-year-old vines in clay-limestone soil located at an elevation of 750 meters in the Tornel region.
Dominio de la Vega Paraje Tornel is a full-bodied red wine with silky tannins, garnet red in color. After malolactic fermentation in French and American oak, it is aged for 12 months in barrel, then bottled and rested a minimum of 12 months more to finish its refinement and roundness. It offers a toasted, spiced and coffee bouquet with hints of minerals typical of its terroir and balsamic notes of the Mediterranean forest herbs and garrigue, finishing with ripe berries.
Enjoy Dominio de la Vega Paraje Tornel over the next 5-7 years as an ideal companion for all kinds of meats, stews, ham, cured cheeses, sausages, as well as chocolates.
