Winemaker's Notes:

High complexity coming from the fruit sensations such as cherry and spices like green pepper and eucalyptus coming together. Balsamic background with incense notes indicative of barrel aging. Pleasant on the palate with a noticeable texture and deep finish. Very enjoyable aftertaste.

Ideally suited with game dishes, poultry, and plum based sauces, savoury cheeses, and meat stews.

My Notes:

About Volteo:

Volteo, also known as Vaulting, is a equestrian discipline described as gymnastics performed on the back of a moving horse in a circle. It is an art that requires the skill of a gymnast, the strength of a sport man and the balance, coordination and gentleness of an acrobatic dancer. The teamwork to obtain a perfect integration of the horse and the vaulter is also key.

With a history extending back to Roman sports it flourished in the Renaissance when it was considered an exercise for knights and noblemen, and also used as a symbol of status.

Volteo is located in the Tierra de Castilla region of central Spain. Noted for its hot, arid plains, there are 600,000 hectares of vineyards in this area, representing nearly 6% of the world's vineyards.
