The Young Red Wine of Bodega El Fabulista is made from Tempranillo grapes. It is extremely fruity and leaves a fresh feeling in the mouth which is typical of wines made using the traditional carbonic maceration method.
This red wine speaks of the youthfulness of the wine, with an explosion of aromas of fruits of the forest, the sparkling bubbles typical of carbonic maceration and the freshness in the mouth that brings to mind the most daring, critical, sceptical and freedom-loving Samaniego that led him to make fun of privileges and even reject a top job in the court offered to him by the Count of Floridablanca.
The Fox and the Grapes
It is commonly known that one day
a hungry fox was hunting
when it came across a vine and looked up
at the fruit hanging from the branches.
It caused the fox endless anxiety
not to be able to reach the grapes with its paw,
as the lofty vine displayed
its dark clusters of grapes among the green leaves.
The fox looked, jumped, and tried again,
but it realised it was hopeless.
Then, the fox said:
“I don’t want to eat them. They’re not ripe.”
Don’t be impatient,
if your efforts are frustrated, Fabio:
apply the story well,
and say: “They are not ripe.”
(Recreation, in English, of the fable La zorra y las uvas by Félix María de Samaniego).
