This wine is named after the Rio Zancara, which is the only major river to wind its way through the dry and dusty area south of Madrid in the Castilla-La Mancha region. On its banks small plots of Tempranillo grapes are grown by wine pioneers and benefit from the moisture generated by the river.
The result is a deeply flavoured wine with classic, strawberry and mulberry aromas, a voluptuous mouthfeel and a soft, smooth finish.
This is an older wine with the colour beginning to turn brick red but still drinking very well and is very fruity and fulsome.
If you like Rioja or any other Tempranillo Spanish wines, you will love this.
