Jimenez-Landi Tierra de Castilla y Leon 'El Reventon' 2015
Produced by Castilla y Leon legend Daniel Landi, ‘El Reventon’ is comprised of 100% Garnacha, hailing from 70 year old vines, grown in sandy granitic soils. Biodynamically farmed at high altitudes, followed by hand harvesting, whole cluster fermentation, and aging in 16 months in large French oak barrels. The final wine is aromatic and firm, full of textured, silky fruit and abundant dark fruit flavors.
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.
