This 2017 Calius Tinto by Bodegas CHP is a blend of traditional Canarian varietals – Vijariego, Tintilla and Listán Negro. The vineyards where these grapes are grown is deep, solidified lava with dry sand on top. With a climate that is dry, sunny and windy, this is one of the most challenging places on Earth to grow grapes. From vineyard to bottle the entire process is done by hand.
Calius Tinto is cherry colored, and a medium-high intensity on the nose with fruits of the forest and the volcanic earth. In the mouth it is robust broad, round and balanced giving a taste of ripe red fruits and a fine mineral thread characteristic of volcanic wines. Enjoy with grilled meats and fish, pasta, sausages and cheeses.
