Care Tinto Roble 2016
Located in the heart of the Cariñena Denomination of Origin, one of the historical and emerging areas of national viticulture, Bodegas Care was born as an exclusive, advanced and committed wine business.
The winery and the creation of our wines were conceived as a complete and innovative process in which each and every one of the elements is meticulously contrasted. From the selection of the vineyard, where sourcing the best quality grapes is our main goal, to the infrastructure of the different production, control and aging areas.
Our wine business responds to a fusion criterion between the tradition of one of the most deeply-rooted wine regions in Spain and the respect to the vine and a wine towards new lifestyles around the world.
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.
With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
