 Chewy, rounded, bright, soft. (RH)  (2/2016)

K&L Notes

The wines made by brothers Joan and Josep d'Anguera have changed dramatically in the past three years. Altaroses is relatively younger vine Garnacha, farmed organically (and in fact, Demeter certified biodynamic), and picked relatively early. Trodden by foot periodically for a few days, fermented with its own yeast, and allowed to age in old barrels, there is a delicacy, purity and freshness to this wine that makes it so drinkable. A perfect window into the style here. Another indicator of the rising quality at Joan d'Anguera: we had a 2013 Finca l'Argata (older vine garnacha from prime parcels) opened next to a young 2010 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo. The Montsant more than held its own! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
