GUÍA SEVI 2021 (93 POINTS) VINTAGE: 2019
Raíces is the flagship brand of Bodegas Fernando Castro. These are mostly classic, elegant and high quality. This is reflected in the bottling, a Bordeaux bottle with a sober, monochromatic labelling and golden elements in the upper and lower frame and in the typography.
Raíces offers wines with an intense character in which the legacy of tradition is sought, as the quality of these wines is the result of experience passed down through the years and constantly perfected by five generations of the Castro family.
It uses native grape varieties as raw material for its varietal wines, such as Tempranillo for the reds and Airén for the whites, except for the Raíces Syrah, which uses this French variety as a base.
VARIETIES OF THE BRAND: Airen white, Reserva, Gran Reserva, Tempranillo, Brut, Crianza, Verdejo, Syrah, Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon. And as the most representative wine of the brand, Raices VI Generation.
