Flaco Tempranillo 2014 750ML      
Sku: 61338

Flaco, made with Spain’s signature Tempranillo grape, means “dude” in English. In the words of The Savvy Lush, Flaco “is the best goof-proof, budget-friendly wine out there. Spain is the largest producer of Tempranillo. These thick-skinned grapes are grown in regions that have hot days followed by cool evenings. This creates a concentrated, yet balanced flavor.” It is produced by Compañía de Vinos del Atlántico in the Demoninación de Origen (DO) of Vinos de Madrid. Flaco shows the complexity of a serious wine for the price of a song! The luscious fruit and soft texture make it a perfect wine for everyday drinking.

Madrid is not only the capital of Spain but also one of the country's most interesting wine growing regions. The outskirts of this great royal city are full of old Tempranillo vines. Most Spaniards do not know that Madrid makes wine, and therefore don't know the incredible values that Madrid showcases at the present time. Madrid is the great unknown.

Tasting notes
Bright ruby. Fresh red berry and spicecake aromas are complemented by deeper hints of cola and licorice. Silky and focused, showing good lift and cut to its tangy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. A floral quality emerges with air and carries through a gently tannic, tightly focused finish. Excellent bang for the buck here.

Rating
“Bright ruby-red. The red fruit nose shows Pinot-like energy, with white pepper and floral pastille nuances adding complexity. Silky and sweet on the palate, offering intense but edge-free raspberry and spicecake flavors. A wine of noteworthy elegance, especially for the money. Finishes sappy, floral and long, with lingering red fruit character and just a hint of tannins.” Vinous, 90 Points
