Alto Cinco Garnacha 2011
Try Alto Cinco with roasted meats & poultry or hearty fish stews. With crispness and silky tannins, it's delightful paired with tomato dishes such as classic Catalan grilled bread with tomatoes, garlic and olive oil or simply enjoy on its own.
Blend: 94% Garnacha, 6% Tempranillo
This northeastern Spanish town is believed to be the origin of the grape with the same name. However, Carinena (in French, known as Carignan) has all but been abandoned in favor of Garnacha, which is better suited for its arid climate. The region of Carinena also produces fine examples of whites based on Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Parellada and others.
