Product Details

An alternative red from Spain that surprised the panel with its combination of mineral and violet aromas. If you love a powerful red with great structure, this one is for you.

This wine comes from an 18th century estate which lay dormant for many years before being bought and revived by Bodegas Martín Códax in 2003. 'Pizarra' is the Spanish for slate, and here refers to the slate that characterises the rocky, mineral-rich soils of Bierzo. A deep cherry red with violet reflections. Lively on the nose, with aromas of strawberry, plum and blackberry, and subtle floral lift. The fruit-filled palate has elegant and restrained tannins. Partner with pasta dishes with fresh tomato sauces.
