100% Garnacha (Grenache)

Perfumed nose of aromatic herbs, berry and cherry notes, and a touch of spice. The palate is elegant with forest fruit and blackberry characters backed by black pepper, spice and balsamic notes. Supple tannins and pure fruit meld into the long finish.

The grapes come from vineyards between 50 and 90 years of age distributed over four farms in three villages that are west of Madrid: Cadalso de los Vidrios, Cenicientos, and Rozas de Puerto Real. The agriculture is biodynamic and fully respects the environment. The vines grow on granitic soil at an altitude of around 1000m. The climate of the area is harsh; maturation is balanced and the wines obtained are fresh and elegant. The grapes are destemmed and maceration takes place at low temperature for about 30 days. Fermentation occurs in barrels and wooden vats at controlled temperatures. The subsequent aging, which lasts 10 months, takes place in French oak barrels with a capacity of 400 and 700L.

The vineyards that Daniel Landi and Fernando Garcia have assembled are all farmed biodynamically. These vines all range in age from 50 to 80 years old and are planted on sandy soils weathered from granite, slate and quartz. A combination of high altitude, freely draining soils, and a mild and fairly humid micro-climate – for central Spain – guarantees a long growing season and a modest alcohol level in the finished wines. The resultant wines are startlingly pale, extraordinarily aromatic, and intensely flavorful.
