Dominio de Tares Cumal, is a red wine made from Prieto Picudo by the Dominio de Tares winery of Castilla y León in Spain.
This variety is indigenous to the province of León and the grapes come from old vines almost a hundred years old located at an altitude of 850 metres above sea level.
The grapes are harvested purely by hand, making a strict selection of the best bunches of grapes at their optimum ripeness and then transported to the winery in 15 kilogramme boxes. On arrival at the winery, a new selection is made on the table. Afterwards, the grapes are destemmed and macerated for 15 days.
In the winery, the alcoholic fermentation process is carried out under controlled temperature with a maximum of 28°C for approximately 28 days. The maceration is carried out with 3 pumping-overs per day for 15 days in stainless steel tanks.
