Tarsus Terno is a red wine produced by Bodegas Tarsus with Tinta Fina grapes.
The wine presented below is an authentic wine jewel, made from 100% Tinta Fina grapes, carefully selected from plots 19, 20 and 21 of the Tarsus Estate. These plots, located in privileged surroundings, enjoy a North-South orientation that allows the vines to receive the perfect amount of sunlight throughout the day. In addition, the average age of these vines is 30 years, which gives the grapes exceptional richness and complexity.
The terroir of this estate is truly exceptional, with a type of chalky clay soil that gives the wine an elegant minerality and unique structure. The roots of the vines sink into this soil, extracting the necessary nutrients and minerals to produce a wine of exceptional quality.
The ageing of this wine is another highlight of the winemaking process. For 16 months, the wine rests in new French oak barrels. This choice of oak contributes subtle notes of vanilla, toast and spices that integrate harmoniously with the fruity character of the Tinta Fina. French oak, known for its elegance and finesse, perfectly complements the typicity of the variety.
After barrel ageing, the wine undergoes an additional period of bottle ageing, allowing the flavours and aromas to integrate further and the wine to reach its fullness. This maturation process in the bottle ensures that, when you uncork a bottle of this wine, you can appreciate all the complexity and elegance that has developed throughout its production.
