Quinta de Aves’ history dates back to the 80s, when its founder, Don Manuel Casado Casla, decided to acquire the property―which comprises 600 hectares and several farms―encouraged by his great passion for the field and his personal link with the rural world.
After 25 years taking care of the soil and improving the vineyards, in 2006, following the recognition of the excellent quality of their grapes, the family decided to start producing and bottling their own wines under the brand Quinta de Aves. To do so, they built a winery, integrated into the vineyard.
In 2008, thanks to the high quality of their grapes, and fruit of their knowledge and dedication to the field, as well as the support of excellent technicians and oenologists, they launched the first wines to the market, getting the unanimous recognition of the sector in both national and international contests. Such positive reception gave them the necessary impetus to continue to rely on their great raw material as well as to perfect the cultivation of their vines and the manufacturing processes of their wines, with the fundamental aim of always offering the highest quality.
Today, with the support of a multidisciplinary team in which youth and experience is mixed in equal parts, Quinta de Aves is present in over 20 countries, and still pursues the objective of consolidating itself as a renowned brand in the world thanks to its philosophy and its good performance in its vineyards―with a firm commitment to provide customers and consumers with the highest quality―, in its manufacturing processes, and in all its wines.
Quinta de Aves – Noctua Ensamblaje 2013 – Tasting Notes
Bright red cherry colour with matt hint. Intense and clean.
Outstanding aroma of ripe fruit, plums and figs, together with roast and vanilla backgrounds, very fine and delicate.
The presence of sweet tannins makes this wine round and velvety showing the forcefulness and seriousness of Graciano that provides longevity, the personality of Merlot that provides body and structure; the energy of Tempranillo with its frankness and the youth and fruity power of Cabernet Franc with spiced touches.
All these details linked to a perfect selection of American and French oak barrels make a very attractive and long-lasting wine.
Serving Temperature from 14 to 16ºC
Filling dishes, stews, red and game meat. Mature cheese. Very good with roast lamb shoulder or even better barbecued.
