Borja Pérez - Listan Negro
The Listán Negro is the queen of Borja Pérez red varieties in Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain). It has lots of pulp, very fine skin, and aromatically produces more airy wines, a bit like a Cabernet Franc. After a rigorous selection in the vineyard and again at the winery, the grapes ferment with some skins in a mix of stainless steel and concrete tanks, undergo a soft, infusion-like maceration, and then malolactic fermentation. Aging is in 500 L old French barrels. The wine is spicy, linear, fresh, seductive, with unique fresh pepper notes and a long finish.Perfect for summer evenings.
