A classic Spanish wine: red-fruited, medium tannins, subtle notes of tobacco and dried violets. The Doble de Diez is one of the new summer favorites at Firstleaf. Sometimes there is nothing that hits the spot like a strong Spanish red paired with classic tapas under the summer sun. The mix of fruit and silky texture make this a vibrant, youthful take on the Old-World style. The savory tannins make a great contrast to the texture of red meat, so consider trying it with a steak before you move on to the more complex Spanish pairings. We have loved it with beautiful cuts of Jamón and Albóndigas. Judges love it too! It took home 92 points and a Gold medal at the 2018 Sommelier Challenge.
For being as elegant and complex as wines anywhere else in the Old World, Spanish wines often fly totally under the radar. The country has so many different micro-climates, elevations, and natural styles that any wine lover can find a new favorite. Our wine experts have loved sourcing wines from all over the Iberian Peninsula.
We love this Spanish stunner for the full bodied red fruit and subtle notes of tobacco and dried violets. These secondary notes make it perfect for pairing with real, complex Spanish food.
