Deep cherry red colour. Intense and attractive nose. Ripe fruit, roasted and spicy notes from the barrel with a mineral taste from the slate soil where the vine grows. The taste is a complex, fruity, powerful and elegant. Well-bodied but soft at the same time, very sweet. A great presence of fruit. Very marked tannins.

Producer: Juan Gil Family Estates

Atteca Armas is a red wine produced by Bodega Ateca in Calatayud.

Bodega Ateca belongs to Juan Gil Bodegas Familiares group, responsible for the development in various denominations for producing well-known wines such as Juan Gil, Clio and La Atalaya.

Atteca Armas is a varietal made from Garnacha. The grapes come from a small plot of 2.5 hectares of old vines more than 100 years old, with a very low yield, which produce very concentrated grapes. They have great aroma and flavour.

The soils consist of rock, gravel and clay slate, and are exposed to a continental climate with strong contrasts in temperature. Cold winters and hot summers.

After a rigorous selection, the grape are macerated before fermentation, which occurs in small stainless steel tanks.

Atteca Armas undergoes an 18-month aging in French oak barrels. Atteca Armas is a wine from Calatayud with character, with much colour, rich aromas and a powerful, tasty and very fruity palate.

Possibly one of the best wines from this appellation. There is a very limited production of 3,600 bottles due to the small size of the farm from which the grapes come and the rigorous selection process.
