Bodegas Arraes "Canallas" Tinto 2018 - Valencia, Spain
Varietals: 50% Tempranillo & 50% Monastrell
The brilliant violet color leads to aromas of cherry, ripe strawberries, vanilla, and cacao. It’s wonderfully juicy on the palate, featuring notes of dark berry, blueberry, vanilla, and spice, all lingering nicely through the lengthy finish. Enjoy this one with a wide variety of foods — burgers, chops, steaks, stews, and roasts.
In 1950, Antonio Arráez Garrigós founded Bodega Arráez in La Font de la Figuera, a somewhat sleepy village an hour’s drive from Valencia. A major turning point at the Bodega occurred with the entry of the third-generation winemaker: Antonio “Toni” Arráez, grandson of the founder. Toni returned to his home region after his studies at Oenology School and after years of practical experience abroad and throughout Spain. He was determined to apply all of this valuable experience at his family winery in order to produce the best expression of wines from his home region.
