Wine maker notes
Flaco, which means ”dude in English, is a wine made from Spain’s signature grape with character that belies its price. The head-pruned vineyards are in the Arganda district, southeast of Madrid, on clay over granite subsoil at 2,400 feet elevation. Madrid is, as yet, a largely unknown region hence its ability to deliver over-performing wines that represent incredible value in today’s market. The region’s southern Continental climate of hot days and cool nights insures a gradual, balanced maturation of the fruit. Usually harvested in mid-September, it is macerated, fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and cement tanks to emphasize the Tempranillo’s youthful purity of flavor. Its luscious fruit and soft texture make it a perfect wine to drink everyday on its own or to use as the basis for a high quality Sangria.

The fresh, pure character of this wine makes this an extremely versatile wine to pair with food. This wine pairs well with white meats like pork and chicken and flaky fish like hake, cod or flounder. This has the fruit and acidity to match with red meats, as well.
