Bottle size and vintage
Created with aromatic grapes grown at a height of 750 metres in a micro-climate of high daytime temperatures and cool nights, Tres Patas is an excellent award-winning wine like most wines from the Canopy winery. After the harvest, the grapes undergo a pre-fermentation maceration at controlled temperatures. The alcoholic fermentation then lasts 15 days, followed by a malolactic fermentation in barrels and 12 months ageing in French oak 400 and 500-litre barrels and larger 1,500-litre foudres. Finally it is bottled unfiltered and unclarified.
The resulting wine has a dark Picota cherry red colour with fragile reddish edges. The first sensations to hit the nose are aromas of very ripe fruit (black plums) with citrus hints promising a fresher mouth than originally expected. Aromas of pepper and anise appear, accompanied by soothing notes of dry leaves and preserved olive brine. The first sip reveals a wine which may seem shy but quickly fills the mouth with juicy fruit and toasted flavours. Its acidity pinches at your cheeks while bitter yet elegant hints of dark chocolate delight the palate. Tres Patas has a versatility rarely seen in a red wine – ideal for drinking alone, or paired with steak or even a homemade stew with pulses. However you choose to drink it, we believe you won't regret it.

Correcto, relación calidad precio, buena.
Olfativamente, es un vino de intensidad media a copa parada,que inmediatamente después de agitar muestra tonos frutales de bayas rojas maduras, notas espaciadas, además de un notable tono mineral . Los suelos de origen granítico producen vinos finos y este es un ejemplo de ello.
Bodegas Canopy is a project which brings together Belarmino Fernández, Jordi Vidal and Alfonso Chacón, three winemaker friends, professionals in the world of wine, business and catering, who decided one day to put their efforts and passion into a wine-growing venture which would enable them to rediscover the historic terrain of the Méntrida denomination, an area that did not enjoy a very good reputation, specialising as it had done for ages in producing bulk wine and with ver...
