Clípeo Tempranillo - Vitis Wine Merchants


100% White Tempranillo


A wine made of 100% Tempranillo Blanco, a grape variety originated at the espontaneous genetic mutation of a single vine of Red Tempranillo, found in a vineyard in Murillo de río Leza in 1986.

The wine has been aged for 7 months in steel tanks on its own yeast. With a bright straw yellow color, in nose shows pineapple, citrics and green apple aromas. In mouth is long, fresh and gliceric with fine acidity. It’s recomended for creamy cheeses, pasta and cold meat.

The nasty beetle makes a stop along the way. It is lost in Rioja Alta among stumps of albino grapes. They are their weakness and their doom. A color, a bouquet, an expression... The white tempranillo captivates by its delicate sensations. There is no turning back, no shield protects... Vitis Wine Merchants introduces 'Clípeo 100% Tempranillo Blanco', a mischief that raises the concept of white wine of Rioja.
