Winemaker's Notes:

The estate of Los Trenzones is located in the area of Quintanar de la Orden, 2,500 feet above sea level, in the southwest corner of central Spain's La Mancha region.
100% Tempranillo.
The color is deep garnet red with purple tones. The Bouquet is complex, voluptuous, and soft. The taste is round, expressive ripe fruit with fine tannins and a soft dryness. Well-defined flavor with an elegant finish.
Well matched with lamb, grilled meats and hearty vegetarian fare.
My Notes:

About Condesa de Leganza:

In 1994 the Martinez family, owners of Bodegas Faustino, the single largest producer of Reserva and Gran Reserva wines from Spain’s renowned Rioja region, bought the 1,477-acre Finca Los Trenzones estate near Quintanar de la Orden in the province of La Mancha. Julio Martinez has made it his personal quest to realize the untapped potential of La Mancha wines, with the long-term goal of establishing the wines of La Mancha on the same level as other top quality wine regions of Spain. To bring his vision to reality, Martinez selected the Finca Los Trenzones property on account of its prime vineyard location. At Finca Los Trenzones Julio Martinez implemented sweeping changes designed to transform this property into a world-class wine estate.
