The grapes come from old vines vineyards, 60-80 years-old, with yields of 2T/Ha and located high on the hillsides, 3,000 ft above sea level, around Calatayud. The vineyards are planted in principally decomposed slate and gravely clay soils. Even though there is very little rainfall in the region (around 350ml per year), the clay is at depth and allows for the vines to obtain moisture and be dry grown.
Vinous / Antonio Galloni 90 - "Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed black and blue fruits and violet on the nose, joined by a suggestion of five-spice powder that emerges with air. Supple, seamless and nicely concentrated, offering juicy boysenberry and floral pastille flavors enlivened by jolt of white pepper. The smooth, subtly tannic finish echoes the blue fruit note and hangs on with very good tenacity."
