La Fea Reserva Tempranillo

100% old vine Tempranillo aged in American oak barrels for 12 months from Carinena, a region and producer challenging Rioja and Ribera del Duero in making this style of wine.

La Fea was the nickname of “Isabel The Catholic” as she was known, the Queen of Castille (1474-1504) and of Aragon (1479-1504). Unfortunately, she wasn´t very pretty and she was not initially popular with the people. However, through her genuine care for her subjects she became renowned and much loved. Their marriage became the basis of the unification of Spain.

Like the Queen, “La Fea” is a range of wines that are powerful and with character!. “La Fea” is an honest wine, clear, that keeps inside a world of sensations to discover, the rootedness to land and the “good-work” of its people along the years.

By closely working with Panizo, Morgenrot have created to exceptional value Reserva and Gran Reserva wines. These wines reflect the huge potential to be unlocked in Cariena.
