Familia Torres Celeste Crianza Tempranillo
Fascinating deep, dark cherry red color. Intense, concentrated aromas of black and blue fruits, revealing notes of ripe figs and an exquisite smoky, graphite streak with minerality. Velvety and flavorful on the palate with noble, fine-grained tannins. Oak aging endows the wine with fine notes of spices such as bitter cocoa and roasted coffee.

ABOUT THE WINERY
Celeste is born 895 meters (2,937 feet) above sea level, where the vines and the sky form a magical connection, resulting in a wine filled with the freshness, emotion, and intensity of a starry night
The area’s topography is gentle, characterized by high plateaus traversed by steep, narrow valleys that give the region its distinctive morphology. The area is located at 895 meters (2,937 feet) above sea level, which has a significant influence on the region’s climate and winegrowing. Specifically, the vineyard sits atop deposits from the Upper Miocene and Quaternary periods. The predominant Upper Miocene lithology is based on grey limestone interspersed with marl, whereas the Quaternary areas are mostly composed of clay. The soils that formed on top of these materials tend to exhibit medium to fine textures and are very rich in carbonate.
