Rich in colour, dark ruby red with violet tears, this is warm and welcoming on the bouquet, sweet red berry aromas with elevated floral notes, hints of rosemary, mint and vanilla. Ripe and full-bodied, black plum and cherry open up on a lithe, minerally palate, fresh fruits giving way to dried fruits and more savoury elements, hints of fruitcake spice, chocolate and coffee bean on the finish.

Tranquillity, that could be the word that comes to mind when you arrive in Valtuille de Abajo, although as you get to know this town, you realize that nothing is what it seems, that within each house there is a lot of activity. In one of these houses lives the García Alba family, whose head of family, Dimas García Canedo, started in 1999 the Vinos Valtuille S.L., managed by two of their four children: Elena and Marcos. The family winery is the reflection of the values passed down through the generations. Effort, the fundamental pillar. Respect and Care for the land, the guidelines that mark the road map. Marcos is in charge of the control of the vineyard and the production of the wines, using the advice that his grandfather Antonio gave him years ago. Marcos, like life in Valtuille, is the Tranquillity of the winery. He understands his wines and gives them the necessary time so they can be enjoyed at their optimum moment.
