Comando G Vinos de Madrid 'Rozas 1er Cru' 2016
Self-proclaimed ‘Garnachistas,’ Comando G focuses on single-vineyard Grenache bottlings, coming from rugged, mountain top vineyards across Gredos. ‘La Bruja de Rozas’ comes from sandy, granitic soils; fruit sees extended maceration, followed by one year of aging in large oak foudres. Juicy and silky, the wine is perfect with burgers and pasta with red sauce; a fun game changer for lovers of the Southern Rhone.
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.
