Ego Bodegas Acuma Red Blend 2018
91 Points - James Suckling
Intense cherry garnet, medium-high layer, clean and bright. Aroma of good intensity, elegant, fine and harmonious. Presence of red and black fruit, with a wooden background of quality reflected in toasted aromas and minerals wrapped in creaminess and sweetness. In mouth, it is a medium-bodied wine, with a very good structure and acidity that makes it pleasant and easy to drink, balanced and expressive. Retro-nasal of fruity aromas perfectly accompanied by those provided by the wood, high persistence and sweet memories.
FOOD PAIRING : Fatty fish stews. Semi-cured or cured aromatic cheeses. White meats, spoon stews or roasts with firewood or charcoal. Rice or kid to the vine shoot firelight. Gazpacho Jumillano and Iberian sausage.
This has super intense fruit aromas and a really saturated, cassis, dark-cherry and plum palate with such silky and soft, ripe tannins. A blend of monastrell, syrah and petit verdot. Drink or hold. – J.S.
