Serious, with ripe soft berry fruit and a great lingering flavour. Suggest drinking with a proper NiÃ§oise salad, or shellfish dishes. 90+ year old vines, with 5% whole bunches added during fermentation ("Madreo")
"...this variety [Prieto Picudo] was traditionally used in the area of Leon to make rose wines using an unusual technique called madreo in whihc whole, unpressed bunches
of grapes were added to the fermenting must, making up about 5% of the total volume. The Dominio Dostares winery has restored this custom using the Prieto Picudo grape in its
Tombu, a rose that wins over even determined red wine lovers. This is a wine with generous alcohol content, anÂ intense bright color, explosive notes of raspberry,
pomegranate and grapefruit, and a full lingering, flavor."
