El Jefe Tempranillo
This is quickly becoming a store favorite!
Don’t let the liter bottle fool you, this is a serious wine that over delivers!
From the importer:
“El Jefe (Grande) – the Big Boss. This is an honest, solid red wine; it is deep, fresh and flexible enough to handle a wide variety of foods. Made of 100% Tempranillo, the main grape of Rioja, this is sourced from a single family estate in the northern table lands called ‘La Meseta’ which is farmed with sustainable and organic methods. Traditionally fermented in cement to preserve purity of fruit and fresh tannins; look for berry, white cherry, plum, stone and mocha notes. Serve this unoaked, lower alcohol (12.5%) red with Spanish-inspired foods such as grilled meats, beans, sausages, cured ham and/or sheep’s milk cheeses, and/or with pizza, pasta and appetizers.”
