A stunning effort by the family run team at Bodegas Recuero, who have shown huge potential for one of Spain's native, and nearly forgotten about, varieties, Moravia. There is lots going on here, firstly violets, similar to that of Valpolicella, unfold on the nose and give way to ripe plum, blackberry, and boysenberry, which are followed by a mineral note of crushed rock (similar to Chateauneuf-du-Pape) and wild herbs. Sumptuous on the palate, it follows through with all the fruit displayed on the nose but with a generous mouth feel and good measure of finely grained tannins. The natural acidity, similar to Pinot Noir and Sangiovese, really shows, giving it great energy and lift.

Varietal: Moravia Agria
Only found in Spain, Moravia Agria is an obscure variety from eastern Castilla-la-Mancha in central Spain. The name refers to its high acidity, agria meaning sour, to distringuish itself from Moravia Dulce (sweet). It can makes wines with appealing aromas ranging from red fruits throught to floral and wild garrique.

Country: Spain
With more area under vines than any other country, it ranks third in terms of quantity of wine produced. The range of its wines is a reflection of the country's regional climatic diversity ranging from the rich and sumptuous reds of the hot and arid Ribera del Duero to the light, crisp whites of the cool Atlantic region of Galicia and Basque Country. For some of the country's best reds, try the regions of Rioja, Navarra, Ribera del Duero, Priorat, and Murcia. Spain is also responsible for some of the world's finest fortified and dessert wines, the finest of which come from the town Jerez (Sherry), in Andalucía.

Region: La Mancha
La Mancha is the largest delimited wine region not only in Spain, but in the whole of Europe. Occupying almost one half of the large Castilla-La Mancha region, the La Mancha viticultural area covers a vast expanse of the central Iberian plateau, and is bordered by Valencia and Murcia to the east, Extremadura to the west, Andalucia to the south and Madrid to the north-west. There are more than 500,000 acres (202,350ha) of vineyard here, spread over 182 municipalities and four provinces (Albacete, Cuenca, Ciudad Real and Toledo).


Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
