The Winemaker: Manolo García Mancera.

Tasting Notes: Tinaja de Zaleo expresses huge purity of fruit with beautifully rounded and supple tannins, hints of herbs and spice, and a long, smooth finish.

The Winery: Zaleo wines express the terroir of Extremadura. They are produced by Viñaoliva, a forward-thinking, export-oriented cooperative based in Almendralejo, right in the heart of Tierra de Barros, Extremadura’s main wine-making area. Our modern, state-of-the-art winery has enabled us to draw out all the potential in our vineyards. Fruit focus and soft tannins combine to create products that are full-bodied yet easy to drink.
