Sensory Description: The 2021 Bela Tempranillo greets you with a high-intensity cherry-red color highlighted by purple hues. Its aromatic complexity reveals floral notes intertwined with red fruits such as currant and raspberry, enhanced by subtle sweet spices and the nuanced influence of French oak, including vanilla and clove. On the palate, it is marked by tasty tannins and a distinctive personality, leading to a long, fruity aftertaste with a final touch of minerality, adding elegance and finesse.

Winemaker's Background: Bela is part of CVNE, a prestigious wine company with deep roots in Spanish winemaking history. Founded by Eusebio Real de Asúa, the label's design is a tribute to his children, represented by stars, with Sofia, known as Bela, being one of them. The winemaking tradition at CVNE emphasizes quality and heritage, with Bela continuing this legacy by producing exceptional wines from their vineyards in Ribera del Duero.

Serving Suggestions: To fully appreciate the nuances of the 2021 Bela Tempranillo, serve it at a temperature of 59-61°F (15-16°C). This wine pairs beautifully with grilled meats, roasted lamb, and hearty stews, making it an excellent choice for elegant dinners and festive occasions. Its complex flavors and refined structure also make it a delightful companion to aged cheeses and charcuterie.
