Vino de Mesa de Castilla y León, Spain
39,90 FIM ~$9.00
It's pleasant to notice that a good wine is availble at such a modest price.
This wine simply has a taste. And that's fine by me.
The dark red, slightly developed Peñascal has a nose of sufficient power. It's full-bodied and rich taste carries rather strong hints of oak. The taste is soft and round, but it also has some kick to it. Quite a suitable wine for the Finnish dinner table that all too often is a bit on the heavy side. And after the dinner, it makes it relaxing to slide into a soft exchange of thoughts. Peñascal creates an atmosphere suiting it's nature - easily approachable.
P.S. The mystery of the daily wine is always very personal. My friend Dr. Malo Fermento's motto is: "we'll continue to find great wine at great prices...and pass them on to you, daily!" There is no better way of solving the mystery.
