Ananto (Spain) 2020 Bobal Tempranillo
90 Points 4.5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Delightfully fruited and spicy at the same time, showing dark berry, floral, clove and cured meat aromas on the nose, followed by a nicely rounded palate displaying supple mouthfeel and polished tannins, finishing lingering and pleasingly dry. At its best: now to 2023." (2019 vintage)

A youthful clean, dark garnet-cherry colour. Complex aromas of red berry fruit (strawberry and blackberry), good fruit expression, lively and complete. The wine opens out on the palate and shows an impressive array of flavours, with blueberry and blackberry at the forefront.
Great intensity and very good balance. Ripe, soft tannins make this wine easy to love.
Superb with roasts and stews, red meat dishes, small game, cheese or cold meats.
Best served at a temperature of 14-16ºC.
