Luis XIV Anforas - 91 PTS - WA

wa95"This is a new dry table wine, a red blend of Monastrell, Arcos and Bonicaire grapes. The 2021 Luis XIV Ánforas is a young, juicy and fruit-driven red with moderate alcohol (13.8%) and ripeness and good freshness. It was produced in a light and approachable style, maturing it mostly in tinaja and a small part in oak. It's perfumed with notes of berries and herbs and has a medium-bodied palate with very good balance and fine tannins. Young, primary and tasty. 5,000 bottles were filled in January 2022. - Luis GUTIERREZ"
