Tenerife Wine: Fabulous & Fruity Marba Tinto

The fruity Tenerife Tinto is Marballous The fruity Tenerife Tinto is Marballous www.photosgrancanaria.com

A spectacular young red from Tacoronte Acentejo in Tenerife that is one of the best value Canarian wines on the market.

The young Marba tinto, rather than the multiple-award winning tinto barrica that's spent time in oak, this is a must try wine for its superb fruitiness.

It's from the Tacoronte Acentejo DO, Tenerife's most acomplished red wine zone. 

On the nose there's black fruit with a clear black mulberry note (somewhere between a blackberry and a raspberry). Also hints of earthiness and spice later on.

 In the mouth more fruit, some tannin. A lovely, intense wine that is just so drinkable. 

This wine is 80% listán negro (for the fruit) and 20% varietal (something like tintilla for extra body and the tannins). 

It's a bargain at 6-8 euros a bottle.

    Gran Canaria's sun is African and in the summer it fries pale northern bodies in minutes. If you want a tan, take it easy for the first couple of days until your skin has a chance to adjust.
