Goes down smooth but with a small bite at the end. Very good wine.

Artadi is a well known brand for Spanish wines, I have known it since I heard about the Spanish wine scene and tried different bottles occasionally, this Artadi is quite basic, it is based on 100% Tempranillo, it has a very dark color, almost black, aromas of ripe red and black fruits and a touch of spices, medium body with high acidity and a dry finish. My score 86, drink to 2022
