2009 Jimenez-Landi "Cantos del Diablo" Garnacha Mentrida

SKU #1107184

For anyone who is curious to discover what the best producers in Spain can achieve with Grenache-based wines, they need not look any further than the excellent range of wines from Jimenez Landi. Located in the D.O. of Mentrida, near the town of Toledo Garnacha thrives and is vinified separately according to the characteristics of various vineyard plots. Based upon a single sandy, granitic plot of old vine Garnacha, Cantos del Diablo is produced from organically grown, hand-harvested grapes. The grapes undergo a 2-7 day cool maceration prior to fermentation and then are fermented whole cluster (30-100% depending on each vine's fruit) with native yeasts in 500 to 1500 liter barrels of French oak. Gently foot trodden, the wines naturally naturally undergo malolactic and are aged for 14 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered, with only a bare minimum amount of sulphur added. The most nervy, high toned, deliciously mineral and red-fruited wine of the range, I would be hard pressed to find a better Grenache-based wine in our inventory than this one. Wow...
