Comando G Tierra de Castilla y Leon 'Tumba del Rey Moro' 2015
Tumba del Rey Moro is the most rugged and rigorous vineyard of all of Comando G’s holdings. Pink granite soils dominate here, with vineyards situated as high as 1100 meters above sea level. Vines are 60-70 years in age, producing concentrated fruit that undergoes a 40-60 day maceration period, followed by on year in large French oak barrels. The final wine is vibrant and bright, full of fresh strawberry flavors noted with white pepper.
One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
