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