Grape variety: 100% Garnacha
Tasting note: Jardín de Lúculo is a wine that bears the distinct personality of its variety, of an intense red colour bordering on violet, elegant on the nose, with notes of violets and orange peel, in which the fruit is nuanced by the oak without losing its spark, only increasing its balance and complexity. Fresh, sweetish to the mouth and pleasant on the palate owing to its freshness and its well-integrated nuances of oak, it invites us to continue drinking and to enjoy.
Service and pairing:
A great pairing with lamb, game, grilled meat and pasta dishes with tomato based sauces. Serve at 16ºC.-18ºC

'Elegant red fruit and savoury aromas give way to a vivid, fleshy palate with plenty of fruit and a nice spiciness. Lovely expression of high-quality Grenache from a cooler climate.'
Decanter Magazine, February 2014
'Rich, concentrated cuvée made from ancient vines, sweet spice, oak and dark fruit compote. A highly accomplished red with a great deal of complexity in its interwoven layers of fig, raisin and sweet spice.'
Deep purple; profound, very characteristic bouquet, fine ripe berries; powerful on the palate, very elegant, complex, with sweet extracts. A splendid Grenache!
