    Winemaker's Notes:

    Syrah 100%. Fermentation at a controlled temperature of between 71° F and 80° F with selected yeast. Total maceration between 25 and 28 days followed by 4 months of aging in French oak barrels. Dry and mineral with hints of ripe red fruits and licorice. Pleasant and persistent finish with balanced tannins that open up in the mouth. Bodegas Carchelo dates from the early 1980s and pioneering efforts to modernize viticulture in what had been a backwater viticultural region. Founding partner Juan Sierva's nearly 700 acres of prime vineyards are widely distributed in the region, at widely varying altitudes and exposures.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This 100% Syrah has earthy aromas of humus, with unctuously ripe flavors of cherries and blackberries filling its soft, generous texture. For grilled meats.

    Charles Justice (9/28/2010)
    The 90 point ratings do justice to this fine wine – although I wouldn’t argue with scores up to 91 or 92. The Carchelo Altico Syrah 2006 displays a very fragrant nose with a perceptibly minerally quality and, as noted, a licorice finish. A great partner to a fine meal of beef short ribs and polenta.
