The wine

Only between 5,000 and 7,000 bottles of this exclusive and original red wine are produced each year. The Venta la Ossa TNT is a perfect example of a wine made from a non-native variety which has adapted perfectly to the local land and environment. In this case we are talking about the Touriga Nacional grape which makes up 85% of this wine. This prestigious Portuguese variety has settled in perfectly to its new surroundings in La Mancha.

Continental and Mediterranean climates meet at the sandy-clay soils of the Finca La Solana plot and create particular environmental conditions which not all grapes can adapt to. However, the dry conditions and soils suit the Touriga National just fine and it thrives alongside the local Tempranillo as can be seen in the intensity and structure of the wines it produces.

The Venta la Ossa TNT is a treasure chest of small cherries, and fresh and juicy fruit spreading very ripe tannins around the mouth. Reminiscences of oak emphasize its glyceric feel and bring a warm note of vanilla to the wine. This glyceric touch widens and spreads the wine as the wild acidity provides balance. Aromas of violets blend with intense notes of toast and malt from the wood, creating a clear example of the ripeness of a Castilla La Mancha wine but with an exotic touch originating from the relatively unusual grape variety used. Prepared with wise hands, this wine achieves an almost perfect balance on tasting before finishing with an elegant and bitter hint of cocoa which throws open a wide range of gastronomic pairings.
