Winemaking Notes: Correcaminos Tinto is Tempranillo from vines planted on slate soils in 1949. The wine was made with partial carbonic maceration in stainless steel. The grapes were pressed after eight days of contact as to avoid excess tannins on the palate. The wine was not filtered or fined. This is a natural wine with no additives including sulfites.

Tasting Notes: As its name indicates, Road Runner is a young, agile and dynamic wine with a long and easy drink. Lively acidity balances the wine's structure and weight. Flavors include sour cherry, plum, blackberry, oregano, licorice, and a hint of tobacco. Try this red wine with a slight chill.
