El Vinculo is a very intense picota cherry red colour in the glass. Aromas of ripe fruits predominate, with a light yet persistent hint of oak, spicy notes and roasted aromas. It has a complex and intense flavour. With a healthy dose of acidity, which gives a feeling of freshness under the tongue. This red wine has a structure defined by tannins. A persistent and flavourful wine, intense in the mouth, which lasts several seconds after passing through the palate.

The vineyards of El Vinculo are located at an altitude between 750 and 650 metres on semi-flat terrain running downward from north to south, facing south, in La Mancha. 80 hectares in total the average vine age is 25 years on mix of sand and clay soils. The wine is aged for 24 months in American oak barrels and 12 months in the bottle before release.
El Vinculo is one of the four Bodegas that comprise Alejandro Fernandez’s wine legacy and constitute Grupo Pesquera. Alejandro is considered to be the “King of Tempranillo” and is amongst one of the finest winemakers in the world..
Pesquera wines are always made from the whole fruit, after destemming. Temperature controlled fermentation lasts two to three weeks. Afterwards, and without clarifying, the grape pulp is directly transferred to an astute and subtle combination of French and American oak barrels that have been subject to various degrees of toasting. Where, in between frequent pump-overs, the wines are left to stand. Tinto Pesquera wines are aged in oak for 18 months while Reservas and Grandes Reservas are aged for no less than 24 months.
Perfect to enjoy accompanied with charcoal-grilled red meat or game dishes such as quail and hare.
